DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 



IN CONGRESS, TUESDAY, JULY 4, 1716. 

Agreeably to the order of the day, the Congress resolved 
luelf into a committee of the whole, to take into their further 
consideration the Declaration; and, after some time, the Pres- 
ident resumed the chair, and Mr. Harrison reported that the 
committee had agreed to a declaration, which they desired 
him to report. ( The committee consisted of Jefferson, Frank- 
lin, John Adams, Sherman, and R. R. Livingston.) 

The Declaration being read, was agreed to, as follows : 

A DECLARATION 

py THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 
IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED. 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary 
for one people to dissolve the political bands which have con- 
nected them with another, and to assume among the powers 
of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws 
of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent r'espect 
for the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare 
the causes which impel them to the separation. 

Wo hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are 
created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with 
certain inalienable rights; thai, among these are life, liberty, 
and Iho pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, 
j;ov('rmnont3 are instituted among men, deriving their just 
powiTs from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any 
form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is 
the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute 
a nuw government, laying its foundation on such principles,

and orf>;anizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem 
must likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, 
indeed, will dictate that governments long established should 
not be changed for light and transient causes ; and, accordingly, 
all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to 
suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by 
aI)olishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, 
when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invari- 
ably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under 
absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw 
off such government, and to provide new guards ior their future 
security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colo- 
nies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to 
alter their former systems of government. Tho history of the 
present King of Great Britain is a history of repealed injuries 
and usurpations, all having, in direct object, tho establishment 
of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
facts be submitted to a candid world : 

He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and 
necessary for the public good. 

lie has forbidden his Governors to pass laws of immediate 
and pressing importance, unless suspended in their opcralioa 
till his assent should be obtained ; and, when so suspended, ho 
has utterly neglected to attend to them. 

lie has refused to pass other laws for tho accommodation of 
hirge districts of people unless those people would relinquish 
the right of representation in the legislature — a right inestim- 
able to them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, 
uncomfortable, and distant i'rom the do])08itory of tinir piiblio 
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing tluMu into compliance 
with his measures. 

lie has dissolved representative hou os repeatedly for oppos- 
ing, with manly firmness, his invasions on tho rights of tho 
people. 

He has refused, for a long time after such dissolutions, to 
cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative jjowern, 
/ncapal)lo of annihilation, have returned to tho people at largo 
for their exorcise, the State remaining, in tho meantime, ox- 



DECLARATION OP INDEPENDENCE. 



posed to all tho danger of invasion from without, and convul- 
sions wiUiin. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these 
States ; for that purpose, obstructing the laws for naturaliza- 
tion of forei: ncn^ ; refusing to pass others to encourage their 
emigration hither, and raising the conditions of new appro- 
priations of lands. 

Ho has obstructed the administration of justice, by refus- 
ing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

lie has made judges dependent on his will alone for the 
tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their 
salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither 
swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their sub- 
stances. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, 
without the consent of our legislature. 

He has affected to render the military independent of, and 
superior to, the civil power. 

He has cominned, with others, to subject us to a jurisdiction 
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us; 

For protecting thsm, by mock trial, from punishment, for 
any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of 
these States; 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world ; 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent; 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by 
jury. 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended 
offenses. 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neigh- 
boring |)rovince, establishing therein an arbitary government, 
and enhirging its boundaries, so as to render it at once an ex- 
ample and lit instrument for introducing the same absolute 
rule into these colonies ; 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable 



DECiARATION OP INDEPENDENCK. 



\ 



laws, and altering, fundamentally, the powers of our govern- 
ments ; 

For suspending our own legislature, and declaring them- 
selves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases 
whatsoever. 

He has .abdicated government here, by declaring us out of 
liis protection, and waging war against us. • 

lie has plundered our seas, ravaged our coast, burnt our 
towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting largo armies of foreign mer- 
cenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and ty- 
ranny, already begun, with circumstances of cruelty and per- 
fidy scarcely parnlleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally 
unworthy the head of a civilized nation. 

lie has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the 
high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the 
executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves 
by their hands. 

Ho has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has 
endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the 
merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an 
undistinguished destruction, of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions, wo have petitioned for 
redress, in the most humble terras; our repeated petitions have 
been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose 
character is thus marked by every act which may define a ty* 
rant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British breth- 
ren. We have warned them, from timo to time, of attempts 
made by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdic- 
tion over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances 
of our emigration and settlement here. Wo have appealed 
to their native justice and magnanimity, and we havo conjured 
them, by the ties of our common kindred, to disavow the^e 
usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections 
and c )rrespondence. They, too, liavo been deaf to tho voice 
of justice and consanguinity. Wo must, therefore, accpiicsce 
in the necessity, which donouncoa our separation, and hold

them; as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war — in 
peace, friends. 

We, therefore, the representatives of the UNITED STATES 
OF AMERICA, in GENERAL .CONGRESS assembled, ap. 
pealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rectitude 
of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the 
good- people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, 
That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, 
Free and Independent States ; that they are absolved from all 
allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connec- 
tions between them and the State of Great Britain, is, and 
ought to be, totally dissolved ; and that, as FREE AND 
INDEPENDENT STATES, they have full power to levy 
war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, 
and to do all other acts and things which INDEPENDENT 
STATES may of right do. And for the support of this Declara- 
tion, with a firm reliance on the protection of DIVINE PROV- 
IDENCE, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our 
fortunes, and our sacred honor.

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION. 



Whereas^ On the twenty-second day of September, in the 
year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, 
a proclamation was issued by the President of the United 
States, containing among other things the following, to-wit : 

That, on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord, 
one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held 
as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the 
people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United 
States, shall be then, henceforth and forever free, and the 
Executive Government of the United States, including the 
military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and 
maintain the freedom of such persons, or any of them, in any 
efforts they may make for their actual freedom. 

That the Executive will, on the first day of January afore- 
said, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of 
States, if any, in which the people therein respectively shall 
then be in rebellion against the United States, and the fact 
that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day bo in 
good faith represented in the Congress of the United States by 
members chosen thereto, at elections wherein a majority of 
the qualified voters of such States shall have participated, 
shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be 
deemed conclusive that such State and the people thereof are 
not then in rebellion against the United States. 

Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the 
United States, by virtue of tlio power in mo vested as Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, 
in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and 
Government of tlK3 United States, and as a fit necessary war 
measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of 
January, in the year of our Lord, one tliouband eight hundred 
and sixty-three, and in accordance w'ilh my puri)OK0 so lo do, 
publicly proclaimed for tho full period of one hundred daya

nate, as the States and parts of States wherein the people 
thereof respectively are tliis day in rebellion againt the

and also the counties of Berkeley, Accomac, Northampton 
Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including 
the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth, and which excepted 
parts are, for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation 
were not issued. 

And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, 
I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within 
said designated States and parts of States are, and hencefor- 
ward, shall be free ; and that the Executive Government of the 
United States,includingthemilitaryandnaval authorities there- 
of, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. 

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free 
to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defense ; 
and I recommend to them that, in all cases, when allowed, 
they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. 

And I further declare and make known that such persona of 
suitable condition will bo received into the armed service of 
the United States, to garrison forts, positions, stations, and 
other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service. 

And upon this, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, 
warranted by the Constitution upon military necessity, I in- 
voke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious 
favor of Almighty God. 

In witness whereof 1 have hereunto set my hand and caused 
the seal of the United States to bo afExed.

POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



PLATFORM OF THE BRECKINRIDGE PARTY OF 18G0. 

Resolved, That the platform adopted by the Democratic 
party at Cincinnati be affirmed, with the following explana- 
tory resolutions : 

1. That the government of a territory organized by an act 
of Congress is provisional and temporary, and during its exis- 
tence all citizens of the United States liavo an equal right to 
settle with their property in the territory, without their rights, 
either in person or property, bemg destroyed by congressional 
or territorial legislation. 

2. That it is the duty of the Federal Government, in all its 
departments, to protect the rights of persons and property in 
the territories, and wherever else its constitutional authority 
extends. 

3. That when the settlers in a territory, having an adequate 
population, form a State Constitution, tho right of sovereignty 
commences, and being consummated by their admission into 
the Union, they stand on an equality with tho people of other 
States, and a State thus organized ought to be admitted into 
the Federal Union, whether its constitution prohibits or rec- 
ognizes the institution of slavery. 

4. That the Democratic party are in favor of the acquisi- 
tion of Cuba, on such terms as shall be honorable to ourselves 
and just to Spain, at the earliest practicable moment. 

5. That the enactments of State Legislatures to defeat the 
faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hostile in 
character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary 
in their effect. 

6. That tho Democracy of tho United States recognize it as 
an imperativ^e duty of the governmcrit to protect the natural- 

(56) 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 57 



ized citizen in all his rights, whether in home or in foreign 
lands, to the same extent as its native born citizens. 

WuEREAS, One of the greatest necessities of the age, in a 
political, commercial, postal, and military point of view, is a 
speedy communication between the Pacific and Atlantic 
coasts; therefore, be it resolved, 

7. That the National Democratic party do hereby pledge 
themselves to use every means in their power to secure the 
passage of some bill, to the extent of the Constitutional au- 
thority by Congress, for the construction of a railroad to the 
Pacific Ocean at the earliest practicable moment. 



PLATFORM OF THE DOUGLAS PARTY OF I860. 

Resolved., That we, the Democracy of the Union in Conven- 
tion assembled, hereby declare our aflBrmation of the resolu- 
tions unanimously adopted and declared as a platform of prin- 
ciples by the Democratic Convention at Cincinnati, in the 
year 1856, believing that Democratic principles are unchanga- 
ble in their nature when applied to the same subject matter, 
and we recommend as our only further resolutions the follow- 
ing: 

That inasmuch as differences of opinion exist in the Demo- 
cratic party as to the nature and extent of the powers of a 
Territorial Legislature, and as to the powers and duties of Con- 
gress, under the Constitution of the United States, over the 
institution of slavery in the territories ; 

Resolved^ That the Democratic party will abide by the de- 
cision of the Supreme Court of the United States over the in- 
stitution of slavery in the territories. 

Resolved., That it is the duty of the United States to afford 
ample and complete protection to all its citizens, at home or 
abroad, and whether native or foreign born. 

Resolved.^ That one of the necessities of the age, in a mili- 
tary, commercial, and postal point of view, is a speedy com- 
nuinication between the Atlantic and Pacific States, and the 
Democratic party pledge such constitutional enactment as 
will insure tho construction of a railroad to-tho Pacific coast 
at iho oarliorit practical period.

68 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

Resolved^ That the Democratic party are in favor of the ac- 
quisition of the Island of Cuba, on such terras as shall be hon- 
orable to ourselves and just to Spain. 

licsolved^ That the enactments of State Legislatures to de- 
feat the faithful execution of tiie Fugitive Slave Law are hos- 
tile in character, subversive to the Constitution, and revolu- 
tionary in their effect. 

Resolved^ That it is in accordance with the Cincinnati Plat- 
form, that during the existence of Territorial Governments, 
the measure of restriction, whatever it may be, imposed by 
the Federal Constitution on the power of the Territorial Leg- 
islature over the subject of the domestic relations, as the same 
has been or shall hereafter be decided by the Supreme Court 
of the tJnited States, should be respected by all good citizens, 
and enforced with promptness and fidelity by every branch of 
the General Government. 



THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM OF 1860. 

Resolved^ That we, the delegated representatives of the Re- 
publican electors of the United States, in Convention assem- 
bled, in the discharge of the duty we owe to our constituents 
and our country, unite in the following resolutions: 

1. That the history of the nation during the last four years 
has fully established the propriety and necessity of the organ- 
ization and perpetuation of the Ixepublican party, and that the 
causes which called it into existence are permanent in their 
nature, and now, more than ever, demand its peaceful and 
constitutional triumph. 

2. That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in 
the Declaration of Independence, and embodied in the Federal 
Constitution, that " all men are created equal ; that they are 
endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, 
among which are those of life, liberty and the pursuit of happi- 
ness, and that Governments are instituted among men to 
secure the enjoyment of these rights:, deriving tlicir just power 
from tlie consent of the governed" — are essential to the pres- 
ervation of our republican institniions^, and that the Federal 
Constitution, the rights of the States, and the union of the 
State^, must and shall bo preserved. •

POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 69 

3. That to the union of the States this nation owes its unpre- 
cedented increase in population, its surprising developments 
of material resources; its rapid augmentation of wealth; its 
happiness at home and its honor abroad; and we hold in 
abhorrence all schemes for disunion, come from whatever 
source they may ; and we congratulate the country that no 
Republican member of Congress has uttered or countenanced 
the threats of disunion as often made by the Democratic mem- 
bers of Congress, without rebuke and with applause from their 
political associates ; and we denounce those threats of disunion 
in case of a popular overthrow of their ascendency, as denying 
the vital principles of a free Government, and as an avowal of 
contemplated treason which it is the imperative duty of an 
indignant people sternly to rebuke and forever silence. 

4. That the maintenance inviolate, of the rights of the 
States, and especially of each State, to order and control its 
own domestic institutions according to its own judgment ex- 
clusively, is essential to that balance of power on which the 
perfection and endurance of our political fabric depends ; and 
we denounce the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil 
of any State or Territory, no matter under what pretext, as one 
of the gravest of crimes. 

5. That the present Democratic Administration has far ex- 
ceeded our worst apprehensions in the measureless subserviency 
to the exactions of a sectional interest, as especially evinced 
in its desperate exertions to force the infamous Lecompton 
Constitution upon the protesting people of Kansas, construing 
the relation between master and servant to involve an unqual- 
ified property in persons; in its attempted enforcement every 
where, on land and sea, through the intervention of Congress 
and of the Federal Courts, of the extreme pretensions of a 
purely local interest; and in its general and unvarying abuse 
of the power entrusted to it by a confiding people. 

6. That the people justly view with alarm the reckless ex- 
travagance which pervades every department of the Federal 
Government. That a return to right economy and accounta- 
bility is indispensible to arrest the plunder of the public 
treasury by favored partisans, while the recent startling devel- 
opments of frauds and corruption at the Federal metropolis 
show that an entire change of administration is imperatively 
demanded.

7. That tbo new dos;ma that tho Constitution of its own 
force carries shwery into any or all the Territories of the 
United States, is a dangerous jiolitical heresy, at variance with 
tho exj)licit provisions of that instrument itself, with coterapo- 
rancous exposition, and with legislative and judicial prece- 
dents, that it is revolutionary in its tendency and subversive 
of the peace and harmony of the country. 

S. That the nominal condition of all the territory of the 
United States is that of freedom; that as our Republican fath- 
ers, when they had abolished slavery in all our national terri- 
tory, ordained that no person should be deprived of life, liberty 
Or property without due process of law, it becomes our duty 
bj legislation, whenever such legislation is necessary, to 
maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts 
to violate it; and we deny the authority of Congress, or a Ter- 
ritorial Legislature, or of any individual, to givo legal existence 
to slavery in any Territory of the United States. 

9. That we brand the recent re-opening of the African Slave 
Trade, under the cover of our national flag, aided by perver- 
sions of judicial power, as a crime agninst humanity, and a 
burning shame to our country and age; and we call upon 
Congress to take prompt and efficient measures for the total 
and final suppression of that exercrable traffic. 

10. That in the recent vetoes by their Federal Governors 
of the acts of the Legislatures of Kansas and Nebraska, pro- 
hibiting slavery in these Territories, we find a practical 
illustration of the boasted Democratic principles of non-inter- 
vention and Popular Sovereignty, embodied in the Kansas- 
Nebraska bill, and a demonstration of the deception and fraud 
involved therein. 

11. That Kansas should, of right, be immediately admitted 
as a State under the Constitution recently formed and adopted 
by her people, and accepted by the Ilouse of Representatives. 

12. That wliilo providing revenuo for the support of the 
General Government, by duties upon imports, sound policy 
requires such an adjustment of these imports as to encourage 
tho development of tho industrial interests of the whole 
country, and wo commend that policy of National Exchange 
which secures to tho working men liberal wages, agriculture 
remunerative prices, to merchants and manufacturers an ade*

quate reward for their skill, labor and enterprise, and to the 
nation commercial prosperity and independence. 

13. That we protest against any sale or alienation to others 
of the public lands held by actual settlers, and against any 
view of the free homestead policy, which regards the settlers 
as paupers or suppliants for public bounty, and we demand 
the passage by Congress of the complete and satisfactory 
homestead measure which has already passed the House. 

14. That the National Republican party is opposed to any 
change in our naturalization laws, or any State Legislation, by 
which the rights of citizenship hitherto accorded to immigrants 
from foreign lands shall be abridged or impaired, and in favor 
of giving a full and efficient protection to the rights of all 
classes of citizens, whether native or naturalized, both at 
home and abroad. 

15. That appropriations by Congress for river and harbor 
improvements of a national character, is required for the ac- 
commodation and security of an existing commerce, or au- 
thorized by the Constitution and justified by the obligation 
of the Government to protect the lives and property of its 
citizens. 

16. That a railroad to the Pacific ocean is imperatively de- 
manded by the interests of the whole country; and that the 
Federal Government ought to render immediate and efficient 
aivl in its construction, and that preliminary thereto, a daily 
overland mail should be promptly established. 

17. Finally, having thus set forth our distinctive principles 
and views, we invite the co-operation of all citizens, however 
difi'ering in other questions, who substantially agree with us, 
in their afljirmauce and support.

The Union, the Constitution and the Laws. 



63 - P.OLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

UNIOX PLATFORM, ADOPTED AT BALTDIORE, JUNE 8, 1864. 

Resolved^ That it is the highest duty of every American 
citizen to maintain against all its cncKiies, the integrity of the 
Union, anrl the paramount authority of the ConsUtution and 
laws of the United States, and that, laying all political opin- 
ions aside, we pledge ourselves, as Union men, animated by a 
common sentiment, and aiming at a common object, to do 
everything in our power to aid the Government in quelling, 
by force of arms, the rebellioii now raging against its author- 
ity, and bringing to the i)unishmcnt due to their crimes, the 
rebels and traitors arrayed against it. 

Resolved^ That we approve the determination of the Gov- 
ernment of the United States not to compromise with rebels 
or to olTer any terms of peace, except such as may be based 
upon an unconditional surrender of their hostility, &c., and a 
return to their just allegiance to the Constitution and laws of 
the United States, and that we call upon the Government to 
maintain this position, and to prosecute the war with the ut- 
most possible vigor to the complete suppression of the rebel- 
lion, in full reliance upon the self-sacrifices, the patriotism, 
the heroic valor, and the undying devotion of the American 
people to their country and its free institutions. 

Resolved^ That slavery was the cause, and now constitutes 
the strength of the rebellion, and that as it must be always 
and everywhere hostile to the principles of Republican Gov- 
ernments, justice and the national safety demand its utter and 
complete extirpation from the soil of tho Republic, and that 
we uphold and maintain the acts and proclamations by which 
the Government, in its own defence, has aimed a death blow 
at this gigantic evil. We are in fiivor, furthermore, of such 
an amendment to tho Constitution, to be mado by tho people 
in conformity with its provisions, as shall terminate and for- 
ever prohibit the existence of slavery within tho limits of tho 
jurisdiction of the United States. 

Resolved^ That the thanks of tho American people arc duo 
to the soldiers and sailors of the army and navy, who have 
pt'iilod their lives in defence of their country, anil in vindi- 
'•;U inn of tho honor of the Hag; that the nation owes them 
•IMII.1 permanent recognition of their patriotism and their 
valor, and ai„plo and permanent proJ^ision for those of their

in the service of their country, and tliat the memories of those 
who havo fallen in its defense, shall bo held in grateful and 
everlasting remembrance. 

Resolved^ That we approve and applaud the political wis- 
dom, the unselfish patriotism and unswerving fidelity to tho 
Constitution and the principles of American liberty with 
which Abraham Lincoln has discharged, under circumstances 
of unparalclled dilliculy, the great duties and responsibilities 
of the Presidential office; that we approve and endorse, as 
demanded by the emergency and essential to tho preservation 
of the nation, and as within the Constitution, the measures 
and acts which he has adopted to defend tho nation against its 
open and secret foes; especially the Proclamation of Emanci- 
pation, and the employment, as Union soldiers, of men hereto- 
fore held in slavery, and that we have full confidence in his 
determination to carry these and all other Constitutional 
measures, essential to the salvation of tho country, into full 
and complete effect. 

Resolved^ That wo deem it essential to the general welfare, 
that harmony should prevail in the national councils, and we 
regard as worthy of public confidence and official trust those 
only who cordially endorse the principles proclaimed in these 
resolutions, and which should characterize tho administration 
of the Government. 

Resolved^ That the Government owes to all men employed 
in its armies, without distinction of color, tho full protection of 
tho laws of war, and any violation of theso laws and of the 
usages of civilized nations in the time of war, by the rebels 
now in arms, should be made the subject of full and prompt 
redress. 

Resolved^ That the foreign immigration, wliicli in the past 
has added so much to the wealth and development of resources 
and increase of power to this nation, the asylum of tho oppress- 
ed of all nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a 
liberal and just policy. 

Resolved^ That w^o are in favor of tho speedy construction of 
the railroad to tho Pacific. 

Resolved^ That tho national faith is pledged for the redemp- 
tion of tho public debt and must bo kept inviolate; and that 
for this purpose we recommend economy and rigid responsi- 
bilities in the public expenditures, and a vigorous and just

system of taxation; that it istl)o duty of every loyal State to 
sustain the use of the national currency. 

Resolvedy That we approve the position taken by the Gov- 
ernment, that the people of the United States can never regard 
with indiiTorence the attempt of European power to overthrow 
by force, or to supplant by fraud, the institutions of any Re- 
publican government on the Western Continent, and that I hey 
will view with extreme jealousy, as menacing to the peace and 
independence of this our country, the efforts of any such power 
to obtain new footholds for monarchial governments sustained 
by a foreign military force iu near proximity to tiio United 
States. 



FREMONT PLATFORM, ADOPTED AT CLEVELAND, MAY 31, 1864. 

1. That the Federal Union must be preserved. 

2. That the Constitution and laws of the United States 
must be observed and obeyed. 

3. That the rebellion must be suppressed by the force of 
arms, and without compromise. 

4. That the rights of Free Speech, Free Press, and the 
Habeas Corpus must be held inviolate, save in districts where 
martial law has been proclaimed. 

5. That the rebellion has destroyed slavery, and the Fed- 
eral Constitution should be amended to prohibit its re-estab- 
lishment. 

6. That the right for asylum, except for crime, and subject 
to law, is a recognized principle — a principle of American lib- 
<'rty; that any violation of it must not be overlooked, and 
»"ust not go unrebuked.

10. That the Constitution shall be so amended that the 
President and Vice President shall be elected by a direct vote 
of the people. 

11. That the reconstruction of the rebellious States belongs 
to the people through their representatives in Congress, and 
not to tho Executive. 

12. That the confiscation of the lands of the rebels and 
their distribution among the soldiers and actual settlers is a 
measure of justice ; that .integrity and economy are demanded 
at all limes in the measures of the government, and that now 
the VT^ant of this is criminal. 



NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OF 1864. / 

Hesolved^ That in the future, as in the past, we will adhere 
with unswerving fidelity to the Union under tlie Constitution 
as the only solid foundation of our strength, security and hap. 
piness as a people, and as a framework of government equally 
conducive to the welfare and prosperity of all the States, both 
Morthern and Southern. 

Resolved^ That this Convention does explicitly declare, as 
the sense of the American people, that after four years of fail- 
ure to restore the Union by experiment of war, during which, 
under the pretence of military necessity or war power higher 
than the Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disre- 
garded in every part, and public liberty and private right alike 
trodden down, and the material prosperity of the country es- 
sentially impaired, justice, humanity, liberty and the public 
welfare demand that immediate efforts bo made for a cessation 
of hostilities with a view to an ultimato convention of tho 
States, or other peaceable means, to tho end that at the earli- 
est practical moment peace may be restored on the basis of 
the Federal Union of the States. 

Resolved, That the direct interference of the military au- 
thorities of the United States in the recent elections held in 
Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri and Delaware was a shameful 



POLITIOAL PLATFORMS. 



/ 



violation of the Constitution, and a repetition of such acts in 
the approaching election will bo held as revolutionary, and re- 
sisted with all the means and power under our control. 

Resolved^ That tho aim and object of tlie Democratic party 
is to preserve tho Federal Union and tho rights of the States 
unimpaired, and they hereby declare that they consider that 
the administrative usurpation of extraordinary and dangerous 
powers not granted by the Constitution, the subversion of the 
civil by military law in States not in insurrection, the arbi- 
trary military arrest, imprisonment, trial and sentence of 
American citizens in States where tho civil law exists in full 
force, the suppression of freedom of speech and of the press, 
the denial of the right of asylum, the open and avowed right 
of disregard of State rights, the employment of unusual test 
oaths, and the interference with, and denial of the right of the 
people to bear arms in their defense, is calculated to prevent 
a restoration of the. Union and a perpetuation of the Govern- 
ment deriving its just powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned. 

Resolved^ Tliat the shameful disregard of the Administra- 
tion to its duty in respect to our fellow-citizens who now are, 
and long have been, prisoners of war in a suffering condition, 
deserves tho severest reprobation on the score alike of public 
policy and common humanity. 

Resolved^ Tliat the sympathy of the Democratic party is 
heartily and earnestly extended to the soldiery of our army 
and sailors of our navy who are and have been in the field and 
on the sea, under the flag of their country, and in the event 
of its attaining power, they will receive all the care, protec- 
tion and regard that the brave soldiers and sailors of the Re- 
public have so nobly earned. 



THE CHICAGO PLATFORM, 1868. 

The following is the platform as adopted: 

The National Republican Party of tho United States, as- 
sembled in National Convention, in the city of Chicago, on 
the 20th day of JMay, 1868, make tho following declaration of 
principles: 

1. We congratulate the country on tho assured success of 



POLinOAL PLATFORMS. 67 

the reconstruction policy of Congress, as evinced by the 
adoption, in the majority of the States lately in rebellion, of 
constitutions securing equal civil and political rights to all; 
and it is the duty of the Government to sustain those consti- 
tutions and to prevent the people of such States from being 
remitted to a state of anarchy. 

2. The guarantee by Congress of equal suffrage to all loyal 
men at the South was demanded by every consideration of 
public safety, of gratitude, and of justice, and must be main- 
tained, while the question of suffrage in all the loyal States 
properly belongs to the people of those States. 

3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a national 
crime, and the national honor requires the payment of the 
public indebtedness in the utmost good faith to all creditors 
at home and abroad, not only according to the letter but the 
spirit of the laws under which it was contracted. 

4. It is due to the labor of the nation that taxation should 
be equalized and reduced as rapidly as the national faith will 
permit. 

6. The national debt, contracted as it has been for the 
preservation of the Union for all time to come, should be ex- 
tended over a fair period for redemption; and it is the duty of 
Congress to reduce the rate of interest thereon whenever it 
can bo honestly done. 

6. That the best policy to diminish our burden of debt ia 
to so improve our credit that capitalists will seek to loan us 
money at lower rates of interest than we now pay, and must 
continue to pay, so long as repudiation, partial or total, open 
or covert, is threatened or suspected. 

7. The Government of the United States should be admin- 
istered with the strictest economy, and the corruptions which 
have been so shamefully nursed and fostered by Andrew 
JouNSON call loudly for radical reform. 

8. We professedly deplore the untimely and tragic death 
of Abraeam Lincoln, and regret tho accession of Andrew 
Johnson to the Presidency, who has acted treacherously to 
the people who elected him, and the cause he was pledged to 
support — who has usurped high legislative and judicial func- 
tions — who lias refused to execute the laws — who has used his 
high ollice to induce other officers to ignore and violate the 
laws — who has employed liis executive powers to render inse*

cure the property, the peace, liberty, and life of the citizen — 
who has abused the i)ardoning power — who has denounced 
the National Legislature as unconstitutional — persistently and 
corruptly resisted, by every measure in hi^ power, every 
proper attempt at the reconstruction of the States lately in 
rebellion — who has perverted the public patronage into an 
engine of wholesale corruption, and wiio has been justly im- 
peached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and properly pro- 
nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five Senators. 

9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other European Pow- 
ers, that because a man is once a subject he is always so, 
must be resisted at every hazard by the United States as a 
relic of the feudal times, not authorized by the law of nations, 
and at war with our national honor and independence. Nat- 
uralized citizens are entitled to be protected in all their 
rights of citizenship as though they were native born ; and 
no citizen of the United States, native or naturalized, must 
be liable to arrest and imprisonment by any foreign power for 
acts done or words spoken in this country; and if so arrested 
and imprisoned it is the duty of the Government to interfere 
in his behalf. 

10. Of all who were faithful in the trials of the late war 
there were none entitled to more especial honor than the 
brave soldiers and seamen who endured the hardships of cam- 
paign and cruise, and imperiled their lives in the service of 
the country. The bounties and pensions provided by the laws 
for these brave defenders of the nation are obligations never 
to be forgotten. The widows and orphans of the gallant 
dead are the wards of the people, a sacred legacy bequeathed 
to the nation's protecting care. 

11. Foreign emigration, which in the past has added so 
much to the wealth, development, and resources and increase 
of power to this nation, the asylum of the oppressed of all 
nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a liberal and 
just policy. 

12. This Convention declares itself in sympathy with all 
the oppressed people which are strugglini^ for thoir rights. 

The following resolutions were also adopted unanimously, 
and are added to the declaration of principles : 

Resolved^ That wo highly commend the spirit of magnan- 
imity and forgiveness with which the men who have served in 



/ 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 69 

tho rebellion, but now frankly and honestly co-operato with 
U3 in restoring tho peace of tlie country and reconstructing 
the Southern State governments upon the basis of impartial 
justice and equal rights, are received back into the com- 
munion of the loyal people. And we favor the removal of 
the disqualifications and restrictions placed upon the late 
rebels in the same measure as the spirit of loyalty will direct, 
and as may be consistent with the safety of the loyal people. 
Resolved^ That we recognize the great principles laid down 
in tho immortal Declaration of Independence as the true 
foundation of Democratic government; and we hail with 
gladness every eflbrt toward making these principles a living 
reality on every inch of American soil. 



DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OF 1868. 

The Democratic party, in National Convention assembled, 
reposing its trust in the intelligence, patriotism, and discrimi- 
nating justice of the people, standing upon the Constitution as 
the foundation and limitation of the powers of the Government 
and the guarantee of the liberties of the citizen, and recog- 
nizing the questions of slavery andsecession as having been set- 
tled for all time to come by the war or tho voluntary action of 
the Southern States in Constitutional Conventions assembled, 
and never to be revived or re-agitated, do, with the return of 
peace, demand : 

1. The immediate restoration of all the States to their 
rights in the Union under the Constitution of the civil Gov- 
ernment and in the American people. 

2. Amnesty for all past political offenses ; the regulation of 
the elective franchise in the States by their citizens. 

3. Payment of the public debt of tho United States as rap* 
idij' as practicable, all money drawn from tho people by taxa- 
tion, except so much as is requisite for tho necessities of the 
Government economically administered being honestly ap- 
plied to such payment, and where tho obligations of tho Gov- 
ernment do not expressly state upon their face or the law 
under which tliey were issued docs not provide that they shall 
bo paid in coin they ought, in right and justice, be paid in the 
lawful money of tho United Slates. 



'^O POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



4. Equal taxation of every species of property according 
to the value ; reducing Government bonds and other public 
securities. 

5. One currency for the Government and the people, the 
laborer and the office-holder, pensioner and the soldier, the 
producer and the bondholder. 

6. Economy in the administration of the Government ; the 
reduction of the standing army and navy; the abolition of the 
Freedraen's Bureau, and all political instrumentalities de- 
signed to secure negro stipromacy ; simplification of the system 
and discontinuance of inquisitorial modes of assessing and 
collecting internal revenue, that the burden of taxation may 
be equalized and lessened, and the credit of the Government 
and the currency made good ; the repeal of all enactments for 
enrolling the State militia into a national force in time of 
peace ; and a tariff for revenue upon foreign imports and such 
equal taxation under the internal revenue laws as will afford 
incidental protection to domestic manufactures as well, with- 
out impairing the revenue, impose the least burden upon and 
best promote and encourage the great industrial interests of 
the country. 

7. Reform of abuses in the Administration; the expulsion 
of corrupt men from office ; the abrogation of useless offices ; 
the restoration of the rightful authority to and the independ- 
ence of the Executive and Judicial Departments of the Gov- 
ernment; the subordination of the military to the civil power, 
to the end that the usurpation of Congress and the despotism 
of the sword may cease. 

8. Equal rights and protection for naturalized and native 
born citizens at home and abroad ; the assertion of American 
nationality, which will command the respect of foreign powers 
furnish an example and encouragement to people struggling 
for national integrity, constitutional liberty, and individual 
rights ; and the maintenance of the rights of naturalized citi- 
zens against the absolute doctrine of immutable allegiance 
and the claims of foreign powers to punish them for alleged 
crimes committed beyond their jnrisdiotion. In demanding 
these measures and reforms, wo airaign the radical party for 
its disregard of right and the unparalleled oppression and 
tyranny which have marked its career, 'alter Iho most solemn 
and unanimous pledge of both houses of Congress to prose-

cute the war exclusively for the maintenance of the Govern- 
ment and the preservation of the Union under the Constitu- 
tion. It has repeatedly violated that most sacred pledge 
under which was rallied that noble volunteer army which car- 
ried our flag to victory. Instead of restoring the Union it has, 
so far as it is in its power, dissolved it, and subjected ten States 
in time of peace to military despotism and negro supremacy. 
It has nullified there the right of trial by jury ; it has abolished 
the writ of habeas corpus, that most sacred writ of liberty ; it 
has overthrown the freedom of speech and of the press ; it has 
substituted arbitrary seizures and arrests, military trials, se- 
cret star chambers, and inquisitions for constitutional tribu- 
nals; it has disregarded, in time of peace, the right of the 
people to be free from search and seizure ; it has entered the 
post-office and telegraph office, and even tho private rooms of 
individuals and seized there their private papers and letters, 
without any specification or notice of affidavit, as required by 
the organic law. It has converted the American Capitol into 
a bastile; it has established a system of spies and official espion- 
age to which the constitutional monarchies of Europe 
never dare to resort. It has abolished the right of appeal on 
important constitutional questions to the supremo judicial 
tribunals, and threatens to curtail or destroy its original juris- 
diction, which is irrevocably vested by tho Constitution ; while 
the learned Chief Justice has been subjected to tho most atro- 
cious calumnies merely because ho would not prostitute his 
high office to the support of the false and partisan charges 
against the President. Its corruption and extravagance have 
exceeded anything known in history, and by its frauds and 
monopolies it has nearly doubled the burden of tho debt cre- 
ated during the war. It has stripped tho President of his 
Constitutional power of appointment even of his own Cabinet. 
Under its repeated assaults the pillars of tho Government are 
rocking to their base; and should it succeed in November 
next, and inaugurate its President, we will meet as a subjected 
and conquered people amid the ruins of liberty and the scat- 
tered fragments of the Constitution ; and wo do declare and 
resolve that ever since the people of tho United States threw 
off all subjection to the British crown, tho privilege and trust 
of suffrage have belonged to tho several States, and have been 
granted, regulated, and controlled exclusively by tho political

power of each State respcotivoly, and any attempt by Con- 
gress, on any pretext whatever, to deprive any State of this 
right, or interfere with this exercise, is a flagrant usurpation 
of power which can find no warraiit in tlio Constitution, and 
if sanctioned by the people will subvert our form of Govern- 
ment, and can only end in a single, centralized and consolidated 
Government, in v/liich the separate existence of the States will 
be entirely absorbed, and an unqualilied despotism then be 
established in place of a Federal Union of coequal States, and 
that we regard the reconstruction acts bo called of Congress 
such usurpations and unconstitutional, revolutionary and void; 
that our soldiers and sailors who carried i ho flag of our country 
to victory against a most gallant and determined foe must ever 
be gratefully remembered, and all tlio guarantees given in 
their favor must be faithfully carried into execution; that the 
public lands should be distributed widely among the people 
and should be disposed of either under the pre-emption of the 
homestead lands and sold in reasonublo quant ities, and to none 
but actual occupants, at the price established by tho Govern- 
ment. When the grants of tho public lands may be allowed 
necessary for the encouragement of important x)ublic improve- 
ments, the proceeds of tho salo of such lands, and not the 
lands themselves, should bo so applied ; that tho President of 
the United States, Andrew Johnson, exercising tho power of 
his high office in resisting tho aggressions of Congress on the 
constitutional rights of tho States and tho i)eoplo, is entitled 
to the gratitude of tho wholo American people, and on behalf 
of the Democratic party, wo tender him our thanks for hia 
patriotic efforts in that regard. 

Upon this platform tho Democratic party appeal to every 
patriot, including all tho conservative element, and all who 
desire to support tho Constitution and restoro tho Union, for- 
getting all past diil"orcn<rei4 of opinion, to unite with us in the 
present great Btrugglo for the liberties of tho people ; and that 
to all such, to whatever party they may have heretofore be- 
longed, wo extend Iho right hand of fellowship, and hail all 
each co-oporating with ub trn friends and brothers.

EEPUBLICAN PLATFORM, 1872. 

The Republican party of the United States, assembled m 
national convention in the city of Philadelphia on the 5th and 
Gth days of Juiie, 1872, again declares its faith, appeals to its 
history, and announces its position upon the questions before 
the country: 

1. During eleven years of supremacy it has accepted with 
grand courage the solemn duties of the time. It suppressed 
a gigantic rebellion, emancipated four millions of slaves, de- 
creed the equal citizenship of all, and established universal 
suffrage. Exiubiting unparalelled magnanimity, it criminally 
punished no man for political offenses, and warmly welcomed 
all who proved loyalty by obeying the laws and dealiugjustly 
with their neighbors. It has steadily decreased with firm 
hand the resultant disorders of a great war, and initiated a 
wise and humane policy toward the Indians. The Pacific rail- 
road and similar vast enterprises have been generously aided 
and successfully conducted, the public lands freely given to 
actual settlers, immigration protected and encouraged, and a 
full acknowledgement of the naturalized citizen's rights se- 
cured from European Powers. A uniform national currency 
has been provided, repudiation frowned down, the national 
credit eustaiUed under the most extraordinary burdens, and new 
bonds negotiated at lower rates. The revenues have been care- 
fully collected and honestly applied. Despite annual large 
reductions of the rates of taxation, the public debt has been re- 
duced during General Grant's Pi'esidency at the rate of a hun- 
dred millions a year, great financial crises have been avoided, 
and peace and plenty prevail throughout the land. Menacing 
foreign difficulties have been peacefully and honorably com- 
posed, and the honor and power of the nation kept in high 
respect throughout the world. This glorious record of the 
past is the party's best pledge for the future. We believe 
the people will not intrust the Government to any party or 
combination of men composed chiefly of iliose who have re- 
sisted every step of this benificent progress. 

2. The recent amendments to the national Constitution 
should bo cordially sustained because they ^re right, not

'\ 

merely tolerated because they are law, and should be carried 
out according to their Bpirit by appropriate legislation, tho 
enforcement of which can safely bo intrusted only to the 
party that secured those aracndraents. 

3. Complete liberty and exact cqualily in the enjoyment 
of all civil, political and public rights should be established 
and effectually maintained throughout tho Union by efficient 
and appropriate State and Federal legislation. Neither the 
law nor its administration should admit any discrimination in 
respect of citizens by reason of race, creed, color, or previous 
condition of servitude. 

4. The national Government should seek to maintain hon- 
orable peace with all nation , protecting its citizens every- 
where and sympathizing with all peoples who strive for greater 
liberty. 

5. Any system of the civil service under which the subor- 
dinate positions of tho government are considered rewards for 
mere party zeal is fatally demoralizing, and we therefore favor 
a reform of the system by laws which shall abolish the evils 
of patronage and make honesty, efficiency, and fidelity the 
essential qualifications for public positions, without creating a 
life tenure of office. 

6. We are opposed to further grants of the public lands to 
corporations and monopolies, and demand that the national 
domain be set apart for free homes for tho people. 

7. The annual revenue, after paying current expenditures, 
pensions, and the interest on tho public debt, should furnish 
a moderate balance for tho reduction of the principal, and 
that revenue, except so much as may bo derived from a tax 
upon tobacco and liquors, should bo raised by duties upon im- 
portations, the details of which should bo so adjusted as to 
aid in securing remunerative wages to labor, and promote the 
industries, prosperity, and growth of tho whole country. 

8. We hold in undying honor tho soldiers and sailors whose 
valor saved the Union. Their pensions are a sacred debt of 
the nation, and the widows and orphans of those who died for 
their country are entitled to tho caro of a generous and grate- 
ful people. We favor such additional IcgisLition as will ex- 
tend tho bounty of tho Government to all our soldiers and 



POIilTICAL PLATFORMS. ^5 

sailors who were honorably discharged, and who in the lino 
of duty became disabled, without regard to the length of ser- 
vice or the cause of such discharge. 

\), The doctrine of Great Britain and other European Pow- 
ers concerning allegiance — "once a subject always a subject" 
— having at last through the efTorts of the Republican party 
been abandoned, and the American idea of the individual's 
right to transfer allegiance having l^een accepted by Euro- 
pean nations, it is the duty of our Government to guard with 
jealous care the rights of adopted citizens against the assump- 
tion of unauthorized claims by their former Governments, 
and we urge continued careful encouragement and protec- 
tion of voluntary immigration. 

10. The franking privilege ought to be abolished, and the 
way prepared for a speedy reduction in the rates of postage. 

11 Among the questions which press for attention is that 
which concerns the relations of capital and labor, and the 
Republican party recognizes the duty of so shaping legis- 
lation as to secure full protection and the amplest field for 
capital, and for labor, the creator of capital, the largest oppor- 
tunities and a just share of the mutual profits of these two 
great servants of civilization. 

12. We hold that Congress and the President have only 
fulfilled an imperative duty in their measures for the sup- 
pression of violent and treasonable organizations in certain 
lately rebellious regions, and for the protection of the ballot- 
box; and therefore they are entitled to the thanks of the 
nation. 

13. We denounce repudiation of the public debt, in any 
form or disguise as a national crime. We witness with pride 
tlio reduction of the principal of the debt, and the rates of in- 
terest upon the balance, and confidently expect that our ex- 
cellent national currency will be perfected by a speedy re- 
sumption of specie payment. 

14. The Republican party is mindful of its obligations to 
the loyal women of America for their noble devotion to the 
cause of freedom. Their admicfsion to-wider fields of useful- 
nebs is viewed with satisfaction ; and the honest demand of 



76 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



any class of citizens for additional rights should be treated 
with respectful consideration. 

15. We heartily approve tho action of Congress in extend- 
ing amnesty to those lately in robollion, and rejoice in tho 
growth of peace and fraternal feeling throughout the land. 

16. The Republican party proposes to respect tiie rights 
reserved by the people to themselvij.s as carefully as the 
powers delegated by them to the State and to the Federal 
Government. It disapproves of tho resort to unconstitutional 
laws for the purpose of removing evils, by interference with 
rights not surrendered by the people to either tho State or na- 
tional Government. 

17. It is the duty of the General Government to adopt such 
measures as may tend to encourage and restore American 
commerce and ship-building. 

18. We believe that the modest patriotism, the earnest pur- 
pose, the sound judgment, the practical wisdom, the incor- 
ruptible integrity, and the illustrious services of Ulysses S. 
Grant have commended him to the heart of the American 
people, and with him at our head we start to day upon a new 
march to victory. 

19. Henry Wilson, nominated ibr tho Vice-Presidency, 
known to the whole land from the early days of the great 
struggle for liberty as an indefatigable laborer in all cam- 
paigns, an incorruptible legislator and representative man of 
American institutions, is worthy to associate with our great 
leader and share the honors which we pledge our best efforts 
to bestow upon them. 



NATIONAL LIBERAL REPUBLICAN CONVENTION, 1872. 
ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF TUE UNITED STATES. 

The Administration now in power has rendered itself guilty 
of wanton disregard of tho laws of tho land, and of usurping 
powers not granted by the Constitution ; it has acted as if the 
laws had binding force only for those who aro governed, and 
not for those who govern. It has thus struck a blow at the 
fundamental principles of constitutional government and the 
liberties of tho citizen. 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 77 

The President of the United States has openly used the 
powers and opportunities of his high office for the promotion 
of personal ends. 

He has kept notoriously corrupt and unworthy men in P^" 
places of power and responsibility, to the detriment of the 
public interest. 

He has used the public service of the Government as a 
machinery of corruption and personal influence, and has inter- 
fered with tyrannical arrogance in the political affairs of 
States and municipalities. 

He has rewarded with influential and lucrative offices men 
who had acquired his favor by valuable presents, thus stimu 
lating the demoralization of our political life by his conspicu- 
ous example. 

He has shown himself deplorably unequal to the task im- 
posed upon him by the necessities of the country, and culpa- 
bly careless of the responsibilities of his high office. 

The partizans of the Administration, assuming to be the 
Republican party and controlling its organization, have at- 
tempted to justify such wrongs and palliate such abuses to 
the end of maintaining partisan ascendency. 

They have stood in the way of necessary investigations and 
indispensable reforms, pretending that no serious fault could 
bo found with the present administration of public affairs, 
thus seeking to blind the eyes of the people. 

They have kept alive the passions and resentment of the 
late civil war, to use them for their own advantage, they 
have resorted to arbitrary measures in direct conflict with the 
organic law, instead of appealing to the better instincts and 
latent patriotism of the Southern people by restoring to them 
these rights, the enjoyment of which is indispensable to a 
successful administration of their local affairs, and would tend 
to revive a patriotic and hopeful national feeling. 

They have degraded themselves and the name of their party, 
once justly entitled to the confidence of the nation, by a base 
sycophancy to the dispenser of executive power and patron- 
ago, unworthy of republican freemen ; they have sought to 
silence the voice of just criticism, and stifle the moral sense 
of the people, and to subjugate public opinion by tyrannical 
party discipline. 

They are striving to maintain themselves in authority for 



r 



78 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

selfish ends by an unscrupulous use of the power which right- 
fully belongs to tho people, and should bo employed only in 
the service of the country. 

Believing that an organization thus led and controlled can 
no longer be of service to tho best interests of the Republic, 
we have resolved to make an independent appeal to the sober 
judgment, conscience, and patriotism of tiio American people. 

RESOLUTIONS. 

We, the Liberal Republicans of tho United States, in 
National Convention assembled at Cincinnati, proclaim the 
following principles as essential to just government: 

1. We recognize the equality of all men before the law, 
and hold that it is the dut^ of government, in its dealings 
with the people, to mete out equal and exact justice to all, of 
whatever nativity, race, color, or persuasion, religious or 
political. 

2. We pledge ourselves to maintain tho Union of these 
States, emancipation and enirauchisement, and to oppose any 
re-opening of the questions settled by tho thirteenth, four- 
teenth, and fifteenth amendments of tho Constitution. 

3. We demand the immcdiato and absolute removal of all 
disabilities imposed on account of tho robollion, which was 
finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal am- 
nesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of 
the country. 

4. Local self-government, with impartial suffrage, will guard 
the rights of all citizens inoro securely than any centralized 
power. Tho public welfare requires the supremacy of the civil 
over the military authority, and tho freedom of person under 
the protection of the htilcus corpus. AVo demand for tho indi- 
vidual the largest liberty consistent with public order, for the 
State self-governujont, and for tho nation a return to the 
methods of peace and the constitutional limitations of power. 

5. Tho civil service of tho (lovormuent has become a mere 
instrument of partisan tyranny and personal ambition, and an 
object of sellish greed, it is a scnndal and reproach upon free 
institutions, and breeds a deujoralization dangerous to tho 
perpetuity of ropublican government. Wo therefore regard 
a thorough reform of tho rivil servico as one of the most press- 
ing nocoHsitiert of tho hour ; that honesty, capacity, and fidelity 



POLITICAL TLATTORMB. 79 



constitute the only valid chiims to pnblic employment ; that 
the offices of the Government cease to be a matter of arbitrary 
favoritism and patronage, and that public station shall become 
again a post of honor. To this end it is imperatively required 
that no President shall be a candidate for re-election. 

6. We demand a system of Federal taxation which shall 
not unnecessarily interfere with the industry of the people, 
and which shall provide the means necessary to pay the ex- 
penses of the Government, economically administered, the 
pensions, the interest on the public debt, and a moderate 
reduction annually of the principal thereof; and recognizing 
that there are in our midst honest but irreconcilable differ- 
ences of opinion with regard to the respective systems of 
protection and free trade, we remit the discussion of the sub- 
ject to the people in their congressional districts and the 
decision of Congress thereon, wholly free from executive inter- 
ference or dictation. 

7. The public credit must be sacredly maintained, and we 
denounce repudiation in every form and guise. 

8. A speedy return to specie payments is demanded alike 
by the highest considerations of commercial morality and 
honest government. 

9. We remember with gratitude the heroism and sacrifices 
of the soldiers and sailors of the Republic, and no act of ours 
shall ever detract from their justly earned fame or the full 
rewards of their patriotism. 

10. We are opposed to all further grants of lands to rail- 
roads or other corporations. The public domain should be 
held sacred to actual settlers. 

11. We hold that is the duty of the Government in its inter- 
course with foreign nations to cultivate the Iriendships of 
peace by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regarding 
it alike dishonorable either to demand what is not right or 
submit to what is wrong. 

12. For the promotion and success of these vital principles 
and the support of the candidates nominated by this conven- 
tion wo invite and cordially welcome the co-operation of all 
patriotic citizens, without regard to previous political affili- 
ations.

NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONVEIfTION, 1872. 

We, the Democratic electors of the United States in Con- 
vention assembled, do present the following principles, 
already adopted at Cincinnati, as essential to just government. 

1. Wo recognize the equality of all men before the law, 
and hold that it is the duty of Government in its dealiriga 
with the people to mete out equal and exact justice to all, of 
whatever nativity, race, color, or persuasion, religious or 
political. 

2. We pledge ourselves to maintain the union of these 
States, emancipation, and eufranchisement, and to oppose any 
re-opening of the questions settled by the thirteenth, four- 
teenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. 

^3. We demand the immediate and absolute removal of all 
disabilities imposed on account of the rebellion, Avhich was 
finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal am- 
nesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of 
the country. 

4. Local self-government, with impartial sufi'rage, will 
guard the rights of all citizens more securely than any cen- 
tralized power. The public welfare requires the supremacy of 
the civil over the military authorit}', and freedom of person 
under the protection of the habeas corpus. We demand for 
the individual the largest liberty consistent with public 
order; for the State self-government, and for the nation a re- 
turn to the methods of peace and the constitutional limita- 
tions of power. 

6. The civil service of the Government has become a mere 
instrument of partisan tyranny and personal ambition, and 
an object of selfish greed. It is a scandal and reproach upon 
free institutions and breeds a demoralization dangerous to 
the perpetuity of republican government. We therefore re- 
gard a thorough reform of the civil service as one of the most 
pressing necessities of the hour ; that honesty, capacity, and 
fidelity constitute the only valid claim to public employ- 
ment; that the offices of the government cease to be a mat- 
ter of arbitrary favoritism and i)atronagc, and that public 
station become again a post of honor. To this end it is im- 
peratively required that no President shall be a candidate lor 
re-election. 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 81 

6. We demand a Bystem of Federal taxation which shall 
not unnecessarily interfere with the industry of the people, 
and which shall provide the means necessary to pay the ex- 
penses of the Government, economically administered, the 
pensions, the interest on the public debt, and a moderate re- 
duction annually of the principal thereof; and recognizing 
that there are in our midst honest but irreconcilable differ- 
ences of opinion with regard to the respective systems of 
protection and free trade, wo remit the discussion of the sub- 
ject to the people in their Congressional districts, and to the 
decision of the Congress thereon, wholly free from executive 
interference or dictation. 

7. The public credit must be sacredly maintained, and we 
denounce repudiation in every form and guise. 

8. A speedy return to specie payment is demanded alike 
by the highest considerations of commercial morality and 
honest government. 

9. We remember with gratitude the heroism and sacrifices 
of the soldiers and sailors of the Republic, and no act of ours 
shall ever detract from their justly earned fame for the full 
reward of their patriotism. 

10. We are opposed to all further grants of lands to rail- 
roads or other corporations. The public domain should be 
held sacred to actual settlers. 

11. We hold that it is the duty of the Government in its 
intercourse with foreign nations to cultivate the friendships 
of peace, by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regard- 
ing it alike dishonorable either to demand what is not right 
or to submit to what is wrong. 

12. For the promotion and success of these vital princi- 
ples, and the support of the candidates nominated by this 
convention, we invite and cordially welcome the co-operation 
of all patriotic citizens, without regard to previous political 
aiUliatlons. 



NATIONAL LABOB REFORM CONVENTION, 1872. 

We hold that all political power is inherent in the people, 
and free government lounded on their authority and estab- 
lished for iheir b^jneAt ; that all citizens are equal in political 

6 



82 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

rights, entitled to the largest religious and political liberty 
compatible with the good order of society, as also the use and 
enjoyment of the fruits of their labor and talents ; and no man 
or set of men is entitled to exclusive separable endowments 
and privileges, or immunities from the Government, but in 
consideration of public services; and any laws destructive of 
these fundamental iirinciples are without moral binding force, 
and should be repealed. And believing that all the evils re- 
sulting from unjust legislation now affecting the industrial 
classes can be removed by the adoption of the principle con- 
tained in the following declaration : Therefore, 

Resolved^ That it is the duty of the Government to estab- 
lish a just standard of distribution of capital and labor by 
providing a purely national circulating medium, based on the 
faith and resources of the nation, issued directly to the people 
without the intervention of any system of banking corpora- 
tions, which money shall be legal tender in thepayment of all 
debts, public and private, and interchangeable at the option 
of the holder for Government bonds bearing a rate of interest 
not to exceed 3-G5 per cent., subject to future legislation by 
Congress. 

2. Tiiat the national debt should be paid in good faith, ac- 
cording to the original contract, at the earliest option of the 
Government, without mortgaging the property of the people 
or the future exigencies of labor to enrich a few capitalists at 
homo and abroad. 

3. Tiiat justice demands that the burden of Government 
should bo so adjusted as to bear equally on all classes, and 
that the exemption from taxation of Government bonds bear- 
ing extravagant rates of interest is a violation of all just prin- 
ciples of revenue laws. 

4. That the public lands of the United States belong to the 
people and should not be sold to individuals nor granted to 
corporations, but should be hold as a sacred trust for the ben- 
efit of the people, and should be granted to landless settlers 
only, in amounts not exceeding one hundred and sixty acres 
of land. 

5. That Congress should modify the tariff so as to admit 
free such articles of common use as we can neither produce 
nor grow, and lay duties for revenue mainly upon articles of 
luxury and upon such articles of manufacture as will» we hav- 



POLITICAL PLATFOKMS. 83 

ing the raw materials, assist in further develoi)ing the re- 
sources of the country. 

6. That the presence in our country of Chinese laborers, 
imported by capitalists in largo numbers for servile use, is an 
evil, entailing want and its attendant train of misery and crime 
on all classes of the American people, and should be prohib- 
ited by legislation. 

7. That we ask for the enactment of a law by which all 
mechanics and day-laborers employed by or on behalf of the 
Government, whether directly or indirectly, through persons, 
firms, or corporations, contracting with the State, shall conform 
to the reduced standard of eight hours a day, recently adopted 
by Congress for national employes, and also for an amendment 
to the acts of incorporation for cities and towns by which all 
laborers and mechanics employed at their expense shall con- 
form to the same number of hours. 

8. That the enlightened spirit of the age demands the abo- 
lition of the system of contract labor in our prisons and other 
reformatory institutions. 

9. That the protection of life, liberty, and property are the 
three cardinal principles of Government, and the first two are 
more sacred than the latter; therefore money needed for 
prosecuting wars should, as it is required, be assessed and col- 
lected from the wealthy of the country, and not entailed as a 
burden on posterity. 

10. That it is the duty of the Government to exercise its 
power over railroads and telegraph corporations, that they 
shall not in any case be privileged to exact such rates of 
freight, transportation, or charges, by whatever name, as may 
bear unduly or unequally upon the producer or consumer. 

11. That there should be such a reform in tho civil service 
of the national Government as will remove it beyond all part- 
isan influence, and place it in the charge and under the direc- 
tion of intelligent and competent business men. 

12. That as both history and experience teaches us that 
power ever seeks to perpetuate itself by every and all means, 
and that its prolonged possession in tho hands of one person 
is always dangerous to the interests of a free people, and 
believing that tho spirit of our organic laws and the stability 
and safety of our free institutions are best obeyed on the one

hand, and secured on tho other, by a regular constitutional 
change in the chief of tho country at each election: therefore, 
wo are in favor of limiting the occupancy of tho presidential 
chair to one term. 

13. That wo are in favor of granting general amnesty and 
restoring tho Union at once on the basis of equality of rights 
and privileges to all, the impartial administration of justice 
being tho only true bond of union to bind the States together 
and restore tho Government of the people. 

14. That we demand tho subjection of the military to the 
civil authorities, and the confinement of its operations to 
national purposes alone. 

15. That we deem it expedient for Congress to supervise 
the patent laws, so as to give labor more fully the benefit of 
its own ideas and inventions. 

16. That fitness, and not political or personal considera- 
tions, should bo tho only recommendation to public cfBce, 
either appointive or elective, and any and all laws looking to 
the establishment of this principle aro heartily approved.

"It is not easy to give an accurate and comprehensive defi- 
nition of the science of geology. It is, indeed, not so much 
one science, as the application of all the physical sciences to 
the examination of the structure of the earth, the investiga- 
tion of the processes concerned in the production of that 
structure, and the history of their action. That this large 
view of geology is not only a true but a necessary one, is 
shown by the fact, that it was not until considerable advances 
had been made in all the physical sciences which relate di- 
rectly to the earth, that geology could begin to exist in any 
worthy form. It was not until the chemist was able to explain 
the nature of the mineral substances of which rocks are com- 
posed ; not till the geographer and meteorologist had explored 
the surface of the earth, and taught us the extent of land and 
water, and the powers of winds, currents, rains, glaciers, earth- 
quakes and volcanoes ; not until the naturalist had classified, 
named, and described the greater part of existing animals and 
plants, and explained their anatomical structure, and the laws 
of their distribution in space;— that the geologist could, with 
any chance of arriving at sure and definite results, commence 
his researches into the structure and composition of rocks and 
the causes which produced them, or utilize his discoveries of 
the remains of animals and plants that are inclosed in them. 
He could not until then discriminate with certainty batween 
igneous and aqueous rocks, between living and extinct ani- 
mals, and was, therefore, unable to lay down any one of the foun- 
dations on which his own science was to rest." — Encyclopedia 
Urltahnicd^ Sih edition^ vol. xv. 

If there is any one fact which the study of geology teaches 
more unmistakably than another, it is, that the matter com- 
posing the crust of the earth, from the time when it was first 
called into existence by the Aat of the Creator to the present, 
has been subjected to an endless cycle of mutations. There

may have been pcriodg of comparative rest and quiescence, 
but none of perfect Blagnalion and stability ; so tliat tlie pres- 
ent condition and conliguration of the earth's surface may be 
considered as the hist result of a series of cosmical changes, 
which commenced with the dawn of creation, and are con- 
tinuing on into the future. 

" Had the exterior crust of the earth been subjected to no 
modifying causes, the world would have presented the same 
appearance now as at the time of its creation. The distribu- 
tion of land and sea would have remained the same ; there 
would have been the same surface arrangement of hill, valley 
and plain, and the same unvarying aspects of animal and veg- 
etable existence. Under such circumstances, geology, instead 
of striving to present a consecutive history of change and 
progress, would have been limited to a mere description of 
permanently enduring appearances. The case, however, is 
widely different." There is no part of the present land-surface 
of the globe which has not at some time been covered by the 
ocean, while much of the present sea bottom has been in turn 
dry land. Many of the loftiest and most extensive ranges of 
mountains upon the globe — the Alps, the Andes, and the 
Himalayas — are of comparatively recent elevation (recent as 
compared with the AVhite Mountains of New England, or the 
Appallachian chain of the Atlantic States); while the com- 
mencement of the existence of every animal and vegetable 
species at present found upon the earth was long subsequent 
to the existence of the myriad organisms, whose remains are 
now found fossil beneath its surface. 

The agencies which have produced, and are still tending to 
produce, changes in the constitution and structure of our 
planet, may bo classified as follows: 1. Igneous agencies, or 
such as manifest themselves in connection with some deep- 
seated source of heat in the interior of the globe. 2. Aque- 
otjs, or thopo arising from the action of the water. 3. Atmos- 
phcric,^or those operating through the medium of the atmos- 
phere. 4. Organic, or those depending on animal and 
vegetable growth. 5. Chemical, or those resulting from the 
chemical action of substances on each other. — Wells^ lllus'

TUE TEMPERATURE OF TUE EARTH. 

The following are some of the observations made most re- 
cently on this subject: In England, observations have been 
made in the vertical shafts of two very deep coal mines, viz., 
at Monkwearniouth, which is 1800 feet deep, and Dunkinfield^ 
which is upwards of 2000 feet deep, and in both cases the ob- 
servations were made while the workmen were sinking the 
shafts, and with every precaution against the influence of any 
extraneous causes. The former gave an inci-ease of 1 deg. of 
Fahrenheit for every sixty feet of depth, and the latter 1 deg. 
for about every seventy feet. The artesian well of Grenelle 
(Paris), is 1800 feet deep; observations made by Arago, during 
the boring, showed that the average increase of temperature 
in this was 1 deg. for sixty feet. At Mordorff, Luxemburg, the 
depth of the artesian well is 2400 feet, and the increase in 
temperature 1 deg. for every fifty-seven feet. At the artesian 
well of New Seltzwork, in Westphalia, the depth is 2100 feet, 
and the increase 1 deg. for every fifty-five feet. At Louisville, 
Ky.jthe depth of an artesian well, finished in 1850, is 2086 feet 
deep, and the average increase is 1 deg. for every sixty-seven 
feet below the first ninety feet from the surface. In the silver 
mine of Guanaxato, Mexico, 1713 feet deep, the increase is 1 
deg. for every forty-five feet. In the coal mines of Eastern 
Virginia, the increase is about 1 deg. for every sixty feet. 

VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS. 

One or two remarkable instances of volcanic eruptions may 
be briefly noticed. First, for duration and force wo may refer 
to that which took place in the island of Sumbawa (one of the 
Sunda Island > lying east of Java), in the year 1S15. It com- 
menced on the 5th of April, and did not entirely cease until 
July. Its influence (i. e. shocks, and the noise of the explo- 
sions) was perceptible over an area 1,800 miles in diameter, 
while withii\ the range of its more immediate vicinity, embrac- 
ing a space of 400 miles, its eflects were most terrific. In Java, 
300 miles distant, it seemed to be awfully present. The sky 
was overcast at noonday with clouds of ashes, which the light 
of the sun was unable to penetrate, and fields, streets, and 
houses were covered with ashes to the depth of several inches. 
At Sumbawa itself, immense columns of flame appeared to 
burst forth from the top of the volcano, 'Tombora, and in a

short timo the wholo mountain appeared like a mass of liquid 
fire, which gradually extended in every direction. As the . 
eruption continued, a darkness supervened, so profound as to 
obscure even the liglit of the flames; showers of stones and 
ashes fell continuously over the wholo island; the sea rose 
twelve feet higher than it had ever been known to do before; 
and finally a whirlwind ensued, which tore up the largest trees, 
and carried them into the air, together with men, horses, cat- 
tle, and whatever else came within its influence. Of 12,000 
inhabitants in the vicinity only, six are believed to have es- 
caped, and of some entire villages not even a vestige remained. 
In 1772, the Papandayang, one of the loftiest volcanic moun- 
tains in Java, after a short but severe eruption, suddenly fell 
in and disappeared in the earth, carrying with it about ninety 
square miles of territory. Forty villages were engulfed, or 
covered with ejected matter, at the same time, and nearly 
3,000 persons perished. — Wells' Illustrated Geology- 

DESCRIPTIONS OF AN EARTHQUAKE. 

"A powerful eathquake," says Mr. Darwin, "at once destroys 
the oldest associations ; the world, the very emblem of all that 
is solid, has moved beneath our feet like a crust over a fluid; 
one second of time has conveyed to the mind a strange idea of 
insecurity, which Jiours of reflection would never have created." 

"To man," says Ilumbolt, "the earthquake conveys an idea 
of some universal and unlimited danger. We may flee from 
the crater of a volcano in active eruption, or from a locality 
threatened by the approach of a lava stream ; but in an earth- 
quake, direct our flight whithersoever wo will, we still feel as 
though we trod upon the very focus of destruction. Every 
Bound — the faintest motion in the air — arrests our attention, 
and we no longer trust the ground on which we stand. Ani- 
mals, especially dogs and swine, participate in the same anxious 
disquietude ; and even crocodiles, in the rivers of South Amer- 
ica, which at other times are dumb, have been observed to 
quit the water and run, with loud cries, into the adjacent 
forests." 

AQUEOUS AND ATMOSniERIC AGENCIES. 

The aqueous and atmospheric agencies most prominently 
concerned in producing geological changes, are raina^and the 



GEOLOaiOAL ITEMS. 97 



gassea and moisture of the atmosphere^ winds^ ice, and snoWy 
springs, rivers, waves, tides, and oceanic currents. 

The operation of water, acting raeclianically, is, under all 
circumstances, to wear down the Iiigher portions of the earth's 
crust, and transport the materials to lower localities — an ac* 
tion which obviously tends to reduce the whole surAice to a 
smooth and uniform level. On the other hand, the operations 
of igneous agents — volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. — by breaking 
up and elevating the crust of the earth, tend to counteract the 
equalizing action of water and to produce that diversity of- 
surface which is indispensable to variety in both the vegetable 
and animal kingdoms. These two forces, therefore — the aque- 
ous and the igneous — may be considered as antagonistic to 
each other, and to them may be ascribed the principal modifi- 
cations which have taken place, and are still taking place, in 
the crust of the globe. — WaWs Illustrated Geology 

CORAL REEFS. 

"The ocean," says Mr. Darwin, *'throwmg its breakers on 
the outer shore, appears an invincible enemy, yet we see it re- 
sisted, and even conquered, by means which at first seem weak 
and inefiicient. No periods of repose are granted, and the 
heavy swell caused by Ihe steady action of the trade wind 
never ceases. The breakers exceed in violence those of our 
temperate regions ; and it is impossible to behold them with- 
out feeling a conviction that rocks of granite or quartz would 
ultimately be' demolished by such irresistable forces. Yet 
these low coral islands stand and are victorious, for here 
another power, antagonistic to the former, takes part in the 
contest. The organic forces separate the atoms of carbonate 
of lime, one by one, from the foaming breakers, and unite 
them into a symmetrical structure ; myriads of architects are 
at work day and night, month after month, and we see their 
soft and gelatinous bodies, through the agency of the vital 
laws, conquering the great mechanical power of the waves of 
the ocean, which neither the art of man nor the mechanical 
works of nature could successfully resist." The animals which 
produce coral are very simple, and resemble plants both in 
their figures and colors.

THE FIRST FORMED STRATIFIED ROCKS. 

Tho adoption of the theory, that our earth was once in a 
state of entire molten lluidity, involves the existence of a sub- 
sequent period, when its primeval crust had sufficiently cooled 
down to allow of tho condensation of watery vapor and of the 
existence of a sea upon its surface. Whenever this happened, 
the eroding and destructive action of water must have imme- 
diately manifested itself, Avhile the particles of the consolida- 
ted igneous crust, worn olT by the action of waves, tides, and 
currents, and deposited as sediments, would naturally produce 
stratified formations. 

The internal heat of the earth at that period, however, must 
have continued to act ^ith great intensity near the surface, 
and the strata first deposited, consequently, were, in all prob- 
ability, soon greatly metamorphosed, i. e.y remelted down to 
form igneous rocks, or converted into hard crystalline semi- 
igneous rocks, that retained, in part, their original lines of 
stratification. 

Whether any of those first formed stratified rocks are in ex- 
istence, and open to our inspection, it is impossible to affirm. 
Some geologists incline to the opinion that they were entirely 
remelted, and are now represented by the older or funda- 
mental granites, wliicli, in some instances, appear to have ah 
obscurely stratified structure. 

Be this as it may, it is, however, a matter of fact, that the 
oldest rocks of which wo have any knowledge, which exhibit 
evidence of a sedimentary origin, ai)pear to have been formed 
under conditions analogous to those above supposed. Thus, 
they are all more or loss crystalline and indurated ; their lines 
of stratification are indistinct, and often altogether oblitera- 
ted; and their whole aspect is very different from what is 
usually ascribed to rocks deposited in water. — Wells^ Illustra- 
ted Geology. 

FORMATION OF COAL. 

It is noV universally admitted by geologists, that coal is a 
mass of compressed, altered, and mineralized vegetation, just 
as sandstone is consolidated sand, and the slate and shale con- 
solidated clay or mud. 

Tho evidence upon which the belief is founded may be 
briefiy stated, as follows : 

let. The enormous profusion of fossil plants, in tho form of 



■Tji^m 



GEOLOOIOAL ITEMS. $0 



impressions of leaves, trunks, branches, and barks of trees, 
found in immediate connection with coal seams. 2d. Coal is 
composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, the same ele- 
ments (though differing in proportion) which enter into the 
composition of plants. 3d. The substance of coal, when ex- 
amined under the microscope, affords unmistakable evidence 
of a vegetable (cellular) structure. 4th. All the stages of 
gradation between perfect wood and perfect coal may be 
traced with the greatest certainty. 

But granting the vegetable origin of coal, the question im- 
mediately suggests itself: Under what circumstances could 
80 great an amount of vegetable matter have ever accumu- 
lated ? — the magnitude of which may be realized in a degree, 
from the asserted fact " that all the forests of the United 
States, if gathered into one heap, would fail to furnish the ma- 
terials of a single coal seam equal to that of Pittsburg, Penn." 

Furthermore, coal is found stratified, laminated, and ex- 
tended, in horizontal beds, which often cover very large areas, 
with a nearly constant thickness — the great Pittsburg coal 
seam, above referred to for example, having a nearly uniform 
thickness of from eight to twelve feet, and is estimated to 
have once covered a surface of 90,000 square miles. Coal, 
moreover, is ordinarily encased between beds of shale or 
sandstone, which bear evident proof of having been slowly 
deposited in quiet waters. In some coal fields, as many as 
seventy seams of coal, varying in thickness from a few inches 
to four, six, eight, ten, twelve, and twenty feet, occur thus in- 
terstratified with shales and sandstones ; and yet, notwith- 
standing these frequent alternations of material, the purity of 
the coal is such, that it rarely contains any considerable ad- 
mixture of mud, sand, or other foreign mineral substances. 

In explanation of these phenomena, various hypotheses 
have been suggested, but the general opinion of the best ge- 
ologists of the present day is, that the vegetable matter con- 
stituting 'coal, must, in the main, have grown and accumu- 
lated in immense jungles and peat mosses for many years ; 
that the land must have then sunk, and become the basin of a 
lake or estuary, into which rivers carried mud and sand; these^ 
covering the vegetable matter, gradually consolidated into 
shales and sandstones, while the vegetable matter itself un- 
derwent the process of mineralization, and was convortod into

coal. This boiug done, it is supposed that the area of deposit 
was again elevated, so as to become once more the scene of 
luxuriant vegetation ; then again submerged, and overlaid by 
new deposits of sandstone and shale; then once more elevated 
and covered with plants, and again submerged; and these al- 
ternations of submergence and elevations are presumed to 
have taken place as often as there are beds of coal in any par- 
ticular coal field. — WeWs Illusirated Geology. 

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS OF THE CARBONIFEROUS ERA. 

There is one circumstance in connection with the formation 
of coal which has given rise to a vast amount of ingenious 
speculation and hypotheses, viz: the apparent sameness of 
external conditions over such extensive areas of the earth as 
are now occupied by our known coal fields. Thus, the same 
gigantic ferns and club-mosses are found alike in the coal 
fields of America, Europe, Melville Island, Greenland, and 
Australia — regions widely separated, and at once tropical, 
temperate, and frigid. To account for this luxuriance and 
homogeneity of vegetable growth various causes have been 
suggested, as the earth's central heat, a clKingo in the earth's 
axis, a larger percentage of carbonic acid in the atmosphere, 
the planetary system moving through warmer regions of space^ 
and the like ; but thus far geologists have arrived at no definite 
conclusions on the subject. 

Deposits of carbonaceous matter have occurred at almost 
every period of the earth's history, as is evidenced by the fact 
that thin scams of coal are found in almost all the geological 
systems ; but the coal beds which admit of economical work- 
ing arc almost exclusively confined to the carboniferous sys- 
tem. The only exceptions are a few coal fields belonging to 
the Oolitic or Jurassic system, which, in Virginia and some 
other localities, admit of profitable mining. It seems, there- 
fore, certain, that whatever may have been the conditions 
which allowed of so abundant a terrestrial vegetation at this 
particular epoch of the earth's history, those conditions ceased 
about the time when the era of the Carboniferous system ter- 
minated. A high temperature was evidently not one of these 
conditions, for there aro evidences of it afterwards; and some 
authorities incline to the belief that the superabundance of 
carbonic acid gas, which is supposed to* have existed during 



QKOLOaiCAL ITEMS. 101 



this era, was expended before its close. " There can be no 
doubt that the infusion of a large amount of this gas into the 
atmosphere at the present day would be attended by precisely 
the same circumstances as in the time of the coal epoch. The 
higher forms of animal life would not iiave a place on earth. 
Vegetation would be enormous; and coal strata would bo 
formed from the vast accumulations of woody matter, which 
would gather in every favorable locality." 

DISTRIBUTION OF COAL. 

Coal is very widely distributed over the world, although 
some countries are more highly favored than others. Avail- 
able coal fields occur in Great Britain ; in Spain, France, Bel- 
gium and Middle Europe; in India, China and Japan ; in the 
islands of the Indian Archipelago ; in Australia and New 
Zealand; in South America, Chili and Peru; in Greenland, 
Melville Island and in British America. But nowhere is the 
coal formation more extensively displayed than in the United 
States, and nowhere are its beds of greater thickness, more 
convenient for working, or of more valuable quality. 

The eastern half of the continent of North America exhibits 
five great coal fields, extending from Newfoundland to Arkan- 
sas : 1. The Urst^ or most eastern, is that of the British Prov- 
inces, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. Its 
area is probably about 9,000 square miles, though only one 
tenth of this surface appears to be underlaid by productive 
coal seams. 2. The second^ or Great Appalachian coal field, 
extends from Pennsylvania and Ohio to near Tuscaloosa, in 
the interior of Alabama. It is about 875 miles long, and is es- 
timated to contain 70,000 square miles. 3. A thirds and 
smaller coal field, occupies the center of the State of Michi- 
gan ; it covers an area of about 15,000 square miles, but is not 
very productive. 4. A fourth great coal field is situated in 
the States of Kentucky, Indiana and Illionois. Its area is es- 
timated at 50,000 square miles. 5. The /?/7A, and most western, 
occurs in Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas, and occupies an area 
of about 57,000 square miles. Besides these great deposits, 
coal is also found in New England, Kansas, Nebraska, and 
Texas. 

The aggregate space underlaid by the coal fields of North 
America amounts to at least 200,000 square miles, or to more

than twenty times the area which includes all the known coal 
deposits of Europe. — Wells' Geology. 

MISCELIxANEOUS. 

The number of si)ecies of animals that now inhabit the globe 
is about 250,000. The number of fossil species of animals and 
plants cannot be reliably estimated, but it is safe to say that 
the number of the different extinct species that have been 
found in fossil state exceeds many times the number of all the 
different species now living. 

Geologists claim four distinct periods or ages of the earth's 
history. Beginning at the oldest, they are called or named, 
First, the Azoic period, or period deficient of the evidence 
of life ; Second, Paleozoic, or period of ancient life ; Third, the 
Mesozoic, or period of middle life; Fourth^ or last period, 
called Cainozoic. This period includes the Post Tertiary, or 
recent system of rocks or period of recent life. 

A picture of the Azoic period has thus been imagined by 
Hugh Miller. "During the early part of the Azoic period we 
may imagine," he says, " a dark atmosphere of steam and va- 
por, which, for age after age conceals the face of the sun, and 
through which the moon or stars never penetrates; oceans of 
thermal waters, heated in a thousand centers to the boiling 
point ; low, hal f molten islands, dim through the fog and scarce 
more fixed than waves themselves, that heave and tremble 
under the impulsions of the igneous agencies ; roaring geysers 
that over and anon tlirow up their intermittent jets of boiling 
fluid, vapor and thick steam, from these tremulous lands; and 
in the dim outskirts of tlie scene, tlio red gleam of fire shot 
forth from yawning cracks and deep chasms. Such would 
be the probal)io state of things among the times of the earlier 
gneiss and mica-cliist deposits — times buried deep in that 
cliaotic night which must huve continued to exist for, may 
hap, many ages after that beginning of things in which God 
created the hoavens and (he earth." 

At lon^tli, however, as the oartli's surface gradually cooled 
down and the onv(!h)i)ing waters sunk to a lower temperature, 
let us fitippoMo during the latter times of the mica schist and 
the earlier tinicn of l ho chiy slate, the steam atmosphere would 
become "K<sm d.MiMo and thick, and finally the rays of the sun 
would B(ru^:giii through it; at first doubtful and diffused, form-

ing a faint twilight, but gradually strengthening, as the later 
ages of the slate formation passed away, until at the close of 
the great primary period day and night — the one still dim and 
^rey, the other wrapped in the pall of darkness — would suc- 
ceed each other as now, as the earth revolved on its axis. 

The number of active volcanoes on our globe are about 275. 
Humboldt suggests the idea that volcanoes are merely vents, 
located above some far extended subterranean crack or fissure 
in the crust of the earth, through which the molten matter of 
the interior escapes to the surface. 

The falls of Niagara are 150 feet in height, and the average 
amount of water passing over each minute is estimated at 
€70,000 tons. This water, by its abrading power, has undoubt- 
edly excavated for itself the gorge or channel — seven miles 
long, 200 feet deep, and 1,200 to 2,000 feet wide—which now 
intervenes between the falls and Lake Ontario. The minimum 
time required to wear through this space has been estimated 
by Sir Charles Lyell, at 35,000 years. — WelVs Illustrated Oeol. 

STRATIFIED ROCKS. 

The stratified rocks of Great Britain have been studied more 
than any other of the earth, and as the result of these investi- 
gations it has been found that the extinct mammalia, found in 
fossiliferous rocks, is more numerous by half than all the 
species now existing; and of molluscs, the fossil species nine 
times as numerous as the living species ; the fossil fish five 
times, the reptiles ten times, and the radiate fourteen times. 

The geologist finds no trace of that golden age of the world 
of which the poets delighted to sing, when all creatures lived 
together in peace, and wars and bloodshed were unknown. 
Ever since animal life began on our planet, there existed, in 
all departments of being, carniverous classes, who could not 
live but by the death of their neighbors ; and wlio were armed, 
in consequence, for their destruction, like the butcher with 
his axe and knife, and the angler witli his hook and spear. 

In Europe, the caverns or caves that have been discovered^ 
have contained the remains or skeletons of a great many of 
the dilTerejit species of animals that now inhabit the earth, 
and of others that are now extinct. Eor instance, the bones 
and skeletons of the mammoth are found in great numbers; 
also of tlie mastadon, the epoch of the niastadon, in a geolog- 
ical sense, is very recent. Some think that the mammoths 
and mastadona did not become entirely extinct in tliis country 
until after the advent of man. Sir (Jliarles Lyell is of the 
opinion tjiat the period of the extinction of the mastadon, 
although recent, must have been many thousand years ago.

PHILOSOPHY. 



No two particles of matter can occupy the same space at tLe 
same time. 

All bodies weigh heaviest at the earth's surface. A body 
that weighs 10 pounds at the earth's surface will weigh but 
2^ pounds 4,000 miles high. 

Take two cog-wheels of the same size; let one stand still 
put the cogs together and put the other in motion, and when 
it has made one-half revolution around the standing wheel it 
will have made a full revolution on its own center, notwith- 
Btanding only one-half of the cogs of its own surface has 
touched the standing wheel. 

The atmosphere is the lightest in wet, rainy weather; yet 
we find people very often who think diiFerent. The medium 
pressure of the atmosphere is about fifteen pounds to the 
square inch, but this is not always the case. The pressure 
will vary in the same locality, and sometimes bo greater or 
less. The medium hight that atmospheric pressure will raise 
water is about 33 feet ; but this calculation only holds good at 
the level of the sea, because as we ascend from the sea level 
the pressure becomes less; hence, our calculations for raismg 
water by atmospheric pressure must bo governed by the pres- 
sure that atmosphere has at tho liiglit of the position above 
the sea level. Illustration : At sea level atmospheric pressure 
fifteen pounds to the square inch ; one milo above sea level, 
about 12| pounds; two miles above, 10 pounds ; three miles, 
7^ pounds; consequently, on an elevation three miles high, 
water cannot be raised but about IGJ feet by the weight of 
the air. 

The top or upper part of a wagon wheel passes through a 
greater amount of space in a given time when running than 
tho bottom ; or, in other words, runs tho fastest.

Tho piston rod of a Btoam engine makes two complete stops at 
every revolution of the crank attached to the end of the pitman. 

House Power. — The average power of a horse is sufficient to 
raise a weight of about 23,000 pounds one foot per minute, but 
when calcuLating tlio horse power of a steam engine it is esti- 
tmatcd at 33,000 pounds. It then follows that a ten horse 
powers team engine is, in fact, about equal to fourteen average 
horses. 

Power op Steam. — One cubic foot of water converted into 
steam will raise the enormous weight of three and a half mil- 
lian pounds one foot, or seven hundred pounds one mile high. 

All bodies or particles of matter fall to the eath by the at- 
traction of gravity, and their speed is in proportion to their 
density; but take away the resisting force of the atmosphere, 
then a cork or feather will fall as fast as a bullet. 

Kesultant motion may be illustrated by holding a ball or 
weight in your hand and dropping it from the top of your head 
while running, you will find that you cannot run fast e,^;,ugh 
to overtake the ball before it strikes the ground. 

A ball may be shot from a cannon from the top of a tower 
on a horizontal plain, and another dropped from the mouth of 
the cannon at the same time, and they will both strike the 
earth at the same time, provided the surface be horizontal 
with the cannon. 

Lever power is almost indispensable, or in other words, 
without it we could scarcely do anything; yet to take in con- 
sideration distance and speed, there is not a particle of power 
gained by a lever. Illustration : Suppose a lever 20 feet long, 
the fulcrum 2 feet from one end of tho lever, 10 pounds on the 
long end of the lever is equal to 100 pounds on the short end ; 
but to raise the J 00 pounds one foot the ten pounds passes 
through 10 feet of space, consequently it travels ten times as 
fast as the 10,0 pounds, so all that is gained in power is lost in 
speed and distance ; because if both ends of the lever was of 
the same length while one end of the lover was passing 
through ten feet of space the other end would pass through 
the same ten feet ; and ten pounds would raise ten pounds ten 
feet high, or ten times as high as tho ten pounds on tho long 
end of the lever would raise tho 100 pounds on th« short end.

SKETCnES OF ASTRONOMY. 



iO:- 



ORIGIN OF THE SOLAB SYSTEM!. 

Many theories have been propounded at different periods 
of the history of astronomy, respecting the original formation 
of our Solar System, as well as all other suns and systems, 
which it has pleased the great creator op all things to call 
into existence, but no ono has gained so great favor or excited 
so violent opposition, as the theory first proposed by Sir Wil- 
liam Herschel, and afterwards more especially applied by the 
celebrated La Place to the formation of the solar system. 

This theory may be thus stated :— In the beginning all the 
matter composing the sun, planets, and satellites was diffused 
through space, in a state of exceedingly minute division, the 
ultimate particles being held asunder by the repulsion of 
heat. In process of time, under the action of gravitation, th-; 
mass assumed a round or globular shape, and the particles 
tending to the centre of gravity, a motion of rotation on an 
axis would commence. The great mass, now gradually cool- 
ing and condensing, must increase its rotary motion, thereby 
increasing the centrifugal force at the equator of the revolv- 
ing mass, until, finally, a ring of matter is actually detach^ 
from the equator, and is left revolving in space by the shrink- 
ing away from it, of the interior mass. If now we follow this 
isolated ring of matter, wo find every reason to believe that 
its particles will gradually coalesce into a globular form, and 
in turn form satellites, as it was it&elf formed. It is unneces- 
sary to* i)ur8Uo the reasoning further, for the same laws which 
produce ono planet from the equator of the central revolving 
mass, may produce many — until finally, the process is ended 
by a partial solidification of the central mass, so great, that 
gravity aided by the attraction of cohesion, is more than suf 
Ccieut to resist the action of tho centrifugal force, and no fur 
ther charngo occurs. 

(106) 



SKETCEKS OP ABTRONOMY. 107 

It has been urged in favor of this theory, that it accounts 
for the striking peculiarities which aro found in the organiza- 
tion of the solar system. That the rings of Saturn are positive 
proofs of the truth of tho theory, they having cooled and con- 
densed without breaking. That the individuals constituting 
a system thus produced, must revolve and rotate as do the 
planets and satellites, and in orbits of the precise figure and 
position, as those occupied by tho planets. It accounts for 
the rotation of the sun on its axis, and presents a solution of 
the strange appearance connected with the sun called the 
Zodiacal Light. It goes further and accounts for the forma- 
tion of single, double, and multiple suns and stars — and by the 
remains of chaotic matter in the interstics between the stars, 
and which are finally drawn to some particular sun, whose in- 
fluence in the end preponderates, accounts for the comets 
which enter our system from every region in space. 

In support of this theory it has been urged that the comets, 
in their organization, presents us with specimens of this finely 
divided nebulous or chaotic matter — and that tho telescope 
reveals cloudy patches of light of indefinite extent, scattered 
throughout space, which give evidence of being yet unformed 
and chaotic. That many stars are found in which the bright 
nucleus or centre is surrounded by a halo or haze of nebulous 
light, and that round nebulous bodies are seen with the teles- 
cope, of an extent vastly greater than would fill the entire 
space encircled by the enormous orbit of the planet La 
Verrier, or having a diameter greater than 7,000 millions of 
2uiles. 

Such are a few of the arguments in support of this most ex- 
traordinary theory. We now present the objections which 
have been most strongly insisted on. The rctrogado motions 
of tho satellites of Ilerschel, and their great inclination to 
tho plane of the ecliptic can not be accounted for by this 
theory. That computation shows that no atmosphere of con- 
densed nebulous matter can extend to so great a distance from 
tho sun, as does the matter composing tlie Zodiacal Light, and, 
finally, tliut the nebulous matter in tho heavens will ulti- 
mately bo resolved into immense congeries and clusters of 
stars, whose great distance has hitherto defied the power of 
tho best instruments. 

In reply to tho first objection, tho friends of tho theory doubt 



lOS SKETCUKS OP ASTRONOMY. 

tho facts with reference to tho satellites of Ilerschel. They 
reply that tho matter composing the Zodiacal Light being in 
tho nature of cometary matter, is thrown to a greater distauco 
from tho sun than gravity would warrant, by that power resid* 
ing in the sun which is able on tho approach of comets to 
X)roject those enormous trains of light, which sometimes render 
them so wonderful. As to tho last objection, it is urged that 
although many nebulas will doubtless bo resolved into stars, 
by using more powerful telescopes, yet that theso same teles- 
copes will reveal moro new nebulas which cannot be resolved, 
than they will resolve — and as to the existence of nebulous 
matter, it is perfectly demonstrated by the physical organiza- 
tion of comets, and tho existence of nebulous stars. 

Such was the state of the Astronomical argument, when 
Lord Rosse's Great Kcflector was first applied to the explora- 
tion of the distant regions of space. In a religious point of 
view, this theory had excited no small amount of discussion, 
in consequence of its supposed Atheistical tendencies. The 
friends of the theory contend that it was no more Atheistical 
to admit the formation of the universe by law, than to acknowl- 
edge that it is now sustained by laws. Indeed since we must 
go to tho first great cause for matter in its chaotic state, as 
well as for the laws which govern matter, that this theory gava 
to us a grander view of tho omniscience and omnipotence of 
God than could bo obtained from any other source. In fine, 
that it harmonized with tho declaration of scripture, which 
tells us that "In tho beginning God created the heavens and 
tho earth, and tho earth was wilhout form and void?'' If the 
earth came into existence in its present condition, then it had 
form and was not void. Ilcnco, this first grand declaration of 
the inspired writer must refer to tho formation of the matter 
of which tho heavens and earth were afterwards formed. Some 
went so far as to trace out dimly a full account of this theory 
in the order of creation, as laid down in Gensis. 

Let us now proceed to tho discoveries of Lord Rosse, and their 
influence on this greatly disputed theory. The space penetrat- 
ing power of his six foot reflector is much greater than that 
of Sir William Ilerschcl's great telescope, and it was anti- 
cipated that many ucbuliio which were unresolved into clusters 
of stars by Ilorshel, would yield under the greater power and 
light of Lord Kosso'a tolescopo. Tina- has proved to be tho 



BKETCHES 0I» ASTRONOMY. 109 

fact. Very many nebulas have been removed from their old 
places, and must hereafter figure among the clusters, while we 
are informed that many yet remain, even of the old nebulae, 
which defy the power of the monster telescope. 

The most remarkable object whicli has been resolved by 
Lord Rosse, is the great nebula in Orion, one of the most 
extraordinary objects in the heavens. Its size is enormous, 
and its figure very extraordinary. In certain parts adjoining 
the nebula tlie heavens are Jet hlacl;^ either from contrast or by 
the vacuity of these regions. Two immense spurs of light are 
seen to project from the principal mass of the nebula, and to 
extend to a most extraordinary distance. This will be better 
understood, by remembering that at the distance at which this 
nebula is removed from us, the entire diameter of the earth's 
orbit, 190 millions of miles, is an invisable x^oint, less than one 
second, while this nebula, extends to many thousands of times 
this distance, and more probably to many millions of times. 

Several stars have been found, and are visible on the nebula, 
but have hitherto been regarded as being between the eye of 
the observer and this remote object. Sir William Ilcrschel 
was unable to resolve this mysterious body, and yet the nebula 
gave indications of being of the resolvable kind by its irreg- 
ular and curdled appearance under high powers. Several 
years since Dr. J. Lament, of Munich, al'ter a rigid scrutiny, of 
this nebula with his great Refractor, pronounced a portion of 
it to bo composed of minute s^^Z/«r_??o/?;75, and predicted its 
final perfect resolution into stars by greater power. This pre- 
diction has been fully verified, for Lord Rossc's great Reflector 
has solved the mystery, and filled this extraordinary object 
with the "jewelry of stars." 

But the question recurs, what have the defenders of the 
nebular theory lost, or its enemies gained by this interesting 
discovery? We are all liable to reach conclusions too hastily, 
and to join issue on false points. If the nebular theory depen- 
ded for its existance upon the irresolvability of the nebula in 
Orion, then indeed has the theory been entirely exploded. 
But this is not the fact. No one has asserted that the 
great nebula in Orion was nebulous maita\ and if it were not, 
then none existed. Such an isauo would Iiavo been a false cne, 
had it been made. 

The theory has neither lost nor gained by the discoveries

thus far made; what time may develope it is impossible to 
say. In case certain data can bo obtained, which appear to be 
accesfiible, then indeed may wo demonstrate its truth or false 
hood, by mathematical investigation. Until then, the safer 
plan is neither to adopt nor reject, but investigate until abso- 
lute truth shall reward our long continued labor, and reveal 
the mystery of the organization of that stupendous system, ot 
which our humble planet forms an insignificant part. — Smithes 
Astronomy. 

Tho sun is the center of the solar system, around which all 
other planets belonging to our universe revolve. The names 
of all the primary planets that have been discovered that con- 
stitute the solar system, are the Sun, Mercury, Venus, the 
Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Ilerschel, Uranus, Neptune, and 
twenty-three asteroids, or small planet?. The approximate 
distance each of the large planets travel in making one revo- 
lution around tho sun is about as follows:

COMETS. 

Very little is known of the physical nature of comets. 
They are thought by some astronomers to be about as dense 
as smoke. They are bodies that revolve around the sun in 
very elongated orbits, and some astronomers think that the 
greater number visit our system but once, and then fly off in 
nearly straight lines, and go to revolve around other suns in 
the far-off distant heavens. The length of the tail of a comet» 
as measured by astronomers, seem almost incredible.

DIl^ECTIONS FOR FINDING THE NORTH STAR, AT ANY TIME. 

Every pupil bLouM bo instructed in the manner of pointing 
out the North Star at any time of the night. If they are ena- 
bled to do this at any time, it will assist them in maldng other 
important observations, as well as being of use on many occa- 
sions which occur in the life of every man. Many persons 
have been lost in Zi prairie or otlier unfrequented places, when 
if they had been able to have told the points of the compass 
they could have extricated themselves from their lost situa- 
tion. This may be done in a very easy manner. There is 
hardly a child of ten years of age who cannot at any time of 
night point out the stars in the Great Bear which form what is 
called the Great Dipper. Now if an imaginary line be drawn 
through the two stars which form the front edge of the Dipper, 
from the bottom towards the top, and continued about 20 de- 
grees, it will pass very near the North Star — so near that it 
cannot bo mistaken, there being no other stars of that magni- 
tude near it. It should be borne in mind that this rule holds 
good in whatever position the Dipper may be at the time. — 
SmiWs Illustrated Astronomy. 

ECLIPSES. 

Eclipses are among the most interesting phenomena pre- 
sented to us by the heavenly bodies. In all ages, when an 
eclipse has taken place, it has excited the profound attention 
of the learned, and the fears and superstitions of the ignorant. 
The causes of eclipses before the seventeenth century were 
known only to a few, and they generally took advantage of 
this knowledge to impose upon the credulity of the ignorant 
by pretending that they were inspired by the Gods. Among 
the ancient nations, the Chaldeans were the foremost in their 
observations of the phenomena of the heavens ; perhaps this 
was owing in some measure to their occupation; they being 
shepherds were obliged to watch their Hocks by night to pro- 
tect thoin frfim the wild beasts which were at that time num- 
erous. Men under such circumstances would naturally be 
led to watch closely the movements of the heavenly bodies, 
and raoro especially so, for in the earlier periods of the world 
they had no correct modo of reckoning time in order to deter- 
mine the seasons or the proper seed time and harvest. 

Eclipses attracted the particular attention of the Chaldeans, 



;a

112 SKKTCnKS OF ASfRONOMY. 

and by a series of observations extended through several cen- 
turies, they discovered a very important fact relating to 
eclipses, although they did not understand tho cause. 

By comparing tho records which had been made for a great 
lenglii of lime, they found that a certain period of time elapsed 
between eclipses of the same kind and magnitude; that is, if 
18 years, 11 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes, were added to tho 
time of tho happening of any eclipse, it would show tho time 
of the return of tho same eclipse; the only dilTerences would 
be that it would not happen at the same time in the day and 
it would be a little greater or less than the previous eclipse — 
thus they were abJe to predict eclipses with sufficient accu- 
racy to answer their designs upon the ignorant without under- 
standing the laws by which these periodical returns were 
produced. 

To explain this briefly, it must be remembered that the 
moon's orbit makes an angle with tho plane of the earth's or- 
bit of 5J deg.; these two points where the moon's orbit cuts 
the plane of the earlii's orbit, are called nodes. Now wo will 
suppose that on any day at noon it is new moon, and the moon 
is just 16 deg. from her descending node, the shadow of the 
moon would just touch tho earth at the north pole ; in 223 lu- 
nations, or IS years, 11 days, 7 hours, 43 minutes thereafter, 
the moon would come nearly to the same position as it was at 
tho beginning, consequently tliere would be another small 
eclipse of the sun, and at the expiration af every 223 lunations 
it would return, and at each return the moon's shadow would 
pass across the earth a little more to the south until the 
eclipse had appeared about 77 times, when it would pass off 
at tho south pole, occupying a period of 1,388 years : The same 
period would not commence again until the expiration of 12,- 
492 years. Each eclipse which takes i)lace during any year, be- 
longs to a separate and similar period. Those periods of 
eclipses which come in at tho moon's ascending node, first 
come on to^tho earth at the south pole, and at each return the 
moon's shadow passes across tho earth more to tlie north, and 
after appearing about 77 times, tliey finally leave the earth at 
tho north i)ole. — Smithes Astronomy.

IMMENSITY OF SPACE. 

Great is the immensity of space. Light travels at the rate 
of one hundred and ninety-two thousand miles per second 
and yet at this great speed it would take it over tliirty million 
years to come Irum some of the far off nebulas to the earth. 
Some ideas of Iho immensity of space maybe gathered by 
the calculation of the distance that light would travel in thirty 
millions of years, and then supposing that the distance ascer- 
tained by the calculation, was to the remaining distance as 
one drop of water is to the ocean. In all probability the most 
powerful telescope has only brought to view a small portion 
of creation. 

The nearest fixed stars, according to the best astronomical 
calculation, 20,000,000,000,000 of miles from the earth. To 
assist the mind of the reader to get some idea of the immensity 
of this distance, I have taken the pains to make the following 
calculation: Suppose that when the Lord past sentence upon 
Cain for killing his brother, that he had banished him to the 
nearest fixed star, and had caused a whirlwind or some other 
power to have taken him at the rate of one thousand miles an 
hour day and night from that time till now, counting the time 
past six thousand years, at 3G0 days travel to the year, he 
would have traveled at the end of the six thousand years only 
one 3.80lh part of the distance, and at the same rate of speed 
at the end of two million years from this time he would not 
reach his destination, but would yet be one trillion three hun- 
dred and eighty-two billion four hiuidred million miles from 
his future home, or place of banishment. So you see that after 
two million and six thousand years travel at the enormoua 
speed of one thousand miles an hour, leaves a distance yet 
untraveled equal to about fifty five million times the distance 
of Cook's voyage around the earth.

SABBATH SCHOOLS. 



-:o:- 



Tho first Sabbath School that we have been able to find a 
record of, was established in the year 1'7G9 in the town of Wy- 
cumbo, England, by a young Methodist lady by the name of 
Hannah Ball. A few years after this another young lady who 
afterwards became the wife of Samuel Bradburn, suggested 
the idea of Sabbath Schools to Robert Rakes. He being a 
man of quick perception and great energy saw at once the ad- 
vantages to be gained by schools of this kind. He immedi- 
ately sot to work and organized a school in the city of Glou- 
cester, England, and through his labors and influence other 
cities of that country were induced to establish Sabbath 
Scliools and work for the Sunday School interest. 

The first Sabbath School established in the United States 
was organized by Bishop Asbury, in the year 1786, in Hanover 
County, Va., at the house of Mr. Thomas Cranshaw. The pro- 
gress of Sabbath Schools in the United States until about the 
year 18->0, was rather slow, as but few of the Christian denom- 
inations up to that time had become interested in the Sunday 
School cause. But one by one, the different organizations of 
Cliristians have gradually adopted the institution of Sabbath 
Schools, till now, the popular method of all churches for the 
religious training of the young is the Sunday School. Now, in 
cvcrj' land and nation, where Christian people reside, the 
Sabbath School cause is advancing. 

Tho organization of Sabbath Schools, 

Remember ono and all, 
Was first established in Wycumbo, 
^ By Misa Ilannah Ball. 

After this Jliss Bradburn 

Suggested to Robert Rakes 
To orgiinizo a Sabbath School, 

And helped him sot the Btakoa.

l-irSTORICAL SKETCH 



OF 



BOOINTE COUNTY 



liooxK Coi'XTV is situated near tlic center of the State, and 
is 24 miles lone;" from cast to west, and 17 miles v. ide. It con- 
tains 41 S s([uaie miles, or 267,520 acres. It is bounded by 
Clinton, Hamilton, Marion, Hendricks and Montc^omcry coun- 
ties. Boone county was nametl i-^ honor of the celebrated 
"Indian fii^htcr, " Daniel Boone, whose name will ever be held 
in hi[^h esteem by frontiersmen. 

The county was organized in the year 1830, the population at 
tlurt time being only 630." In the \car 1840 it was 8,12T^ and 
at this time (1S74) it is about ~"" 000. The county is divided 
into twelve townships — V^'orth, Jackson, Harrison, Perry, Eagle, 
Union, Center, Jefferson, Sugar Creek, Washington, Clinton 
and iMarion. The southeastern, western and northwestern por- 
tions of the county are gently undulating ; th.c other portions 
art: level. The soil in most parts of the county is a dark loam, 
dee[> and ver}' rich. It is remarkably well adapted to the pro- 
duction of all kinds of grain, grasses and vegetables common to 
Indiana's climate. Timber is very plent)' and of the best 
quality. Boom.- county is coniposcxl of the summit lands di- 
viding the waters of the Wabash and White Rivers. This ac- 
counts partiall}' fi)r the level wet lands so common on almost all 
dividin;.;'ridges. The}' are called "simiipit levels," and some- 
times are composed of matiy ponds and little lakes, with only 



132 BOONli COUNTY. 



here and there a ridge or hillock. Boone county, however, is 
susceptible of being drained. 

The county is watered by Kagle Creek, White Lick and Wal- 
nut Fork of Va:\ River, which empty into the former, and Big 
Raccoon and Sugar Creek, wliich empty into the latte^r. Owing 
to the level surface of the country where these streams have 
their source, they are sluggish and comparatively of no value in 
the way of propelling machinery. 

The dense forests of heavy timber and low wet lands of 
Boone county were not sufficiently attractive to bring within its 
borders a class of men of peculiar refinement and means ; con- 
sequently it was first settled by men of stout constitutions, iron 
wills, and but little financial resources. It required a vast 
amount of labor and untiring effort to clear away the heavy for- 
est trees preparatory to raising a crop. Many of the early set- 
tlers cleared out a little " truck patch " sufficient to raise some 
"" roasting ears, " beans and other "garden sass," after which 
they applied themselves to hunting, fishing and ginseng digging. 

The settler who could command a good rifle, two or three 
dogs, a cow, and one old horse, with the means to biiy powder 
and lead, was considered supremely hajipy. In these early 
days there was abundance of wild game — deer, bear, wolves, 
turkeys, pheasants and quails. The currency of the country 
was the skins of deer, raccoons, mink, and wild honey. 

This county was once the home and hunting-grounds of a 
tribe of Miami Indians ; upon the banks of the streams were 
their ff/>(rs and the graves of their fathers ; here lie the remains 
of many a brave hunter and warrior. The present site of Thorn- 
town was once the habitation of nearly Civc hundred Indians and 
French traders. About the year 1833 most of the tribe were 
removed from the reserve at that place, which was purchased 
by the Government in 1828, being the last Indian reservation in 
-.the State. There are now scarcely any visilile marks of their 
ever having existed in that seclicn of country. 



WI 



HISTORICAL SKKTCH. . . '33 



Thonitown, in the northwestern part of the county, was once 
a lively Indian trading post; since that time it has become a 
lively place, with a civilized home trade. The old landmarks 
arc obliterated ; old and rude customs have given place to re- 
finement and social communication. * 

Only a few years ago the county of Boone was a wilderness, 
so densely covered with heavy timber and underbrush that the 
rays of the sun were almost entirely cut off from the earth in 
the summer season. Lonely and desolate must have been the 
feelings of those who first traversed these woods, when naught 
but nature's uncultured sounds greeted the ear — when the eye 
could -^^ee no heavens, for the intervening foliage — when serpents 
and lizards, frogs and hornets, and wild beasts were possessors 
of the land. Forty years have wrought a mighty change in the 
county. Then, no cleared fields were visible from one neigh- 
bor's to another ; great lakes of water, backed up by huge 
trunks of fallen trees, were visible on every hand ; but now the 
lake has become a fertile field, great farms have been opened, 
the eye can see for miles over green fields of corn ; the uncouth 
song of the bull-frog is scarcely heard in the land ; the howl of 
the wolf is no more ; the bear, wild-cat and panther infest no 
more the forest ; the cabin superseded the wigwam, and the 
neat cottage has superseded the cabin in many places. Time, 
that mighty-event worker, has brought out of the wilderness a 
land plenteous with good things. 

Lebanon, the county seat, is located near the center of the 
county, in a rich and productive section. The town is not as 
large as it should be for so wealthy a county as it represents. 
The improvements, however, are of a substantial character; 
many fine brick business blocks and cottage residences may be 
seen by the observer, all going to show that the citizens arc 
awake to the interests of the city. The population of Lebanon 
is about" 3, OCX), composed generally of fTrst class men and wo 
men, who rcganl civilization and refinement as the legitimate

dosliny of iiKUi. The people are energetic, alive to business 
and hospitable to strangers. 

'I'lic I. C. & L. R. R. runs through Lebanon ; it passes 
through the county from the southeast corner to the northwest, 
thus gi\'ing to the county an easy outlet for the shipment of its 
various productions. 

Were it not for the attractions aiul inducements of the great 
city of IndianapoUs for manufacturers to locate at that place, 
Lebanon would now be but a cit}' n embryo; as it is her close 
proximity to a place offering so many superior advantages will 
undoubtedly cripple her future prospects. Indianapolis makes 
a draw upon llie country for a circle of many miles, and Leba- 
non is a considerable distance within that circle, being only 28 
miles from the .State capital ; yet it is safe to calculate that 
Lebanon will attain to considerable iniportance, from the fact 
that it is .surrounded by a district of country possessed of a 
wealth of forest and a productive soil that is not surpassed in ■ 
the State. Hundreds of thousands of staves are annually 
shipped out of tin- county, while the farmers are enlarging 
their fields and multipljang tlieir products. Thus the county is 
growing in wealth. 

The citizens of Lebanon are wide awake to scholastic and 
church interests. It is an admitted fact that the status of a 
community may be measured by its facilities for learning. 
Lebanon has a graded public school, thoroughly organized, and 
presents to the advanced students man)' superior advantages. 
It is managetl by a competent corps of teachers. The school 
is .divided into various departn-jents — Primary, Intermediate, 
Grammar and High School — securing efficiency and thorough- 
ness. The city is amply sup[)lied with churches, there being 
five church organizations and four church buildings. 

As has already been remarked, l^oone county was but a few 
years ago an absolute wilderness, and to one who is familiar with 
its early history it is a liuUter of great .-urprise how in so .short

a time so many ^ood and permanent improvements could have 
been made, 'Hie public improvements are of a substantial 
character. The Court House at Lebanon is an honor to the 
citizens of the county. The school houses, bridges and gravel 
roads all indicate a lively interest on the part of the people in 
the welfare of the county. 

We must not leave this part of our history without calling the 
reader's attention to personal enterprises. Boone county has 
within her borders more than 150 manufacturing establishments 
— woolen mills, grist mills, saw mills, stave factories, heading 
factories, wagon shops, carriage and bug^oy shops, and many 
others which we have not space to mention. There are 53 
steam engines and 6 water-wheels in the county. The manufac- 
turing interests give employment to near 1000 men, and work 
up annually about $600,000 worth of raw material, producing 
nearly 5 1, 000,000 worth of manufactured goods. These figures 
are a monument of honor for Boone county. P^orty miles of 
railway traverse the county. The improved farms are estimated 
to contain 129,940 acres of cultivated land, valued at abor.t 
^9,000,000. There are 7902 horses, 650 mules, ntar')^ 6000 
milch cows, 50 work oxen, 24,000 sheep, and 29,000 head of 
suinc, estimated at a value of $1,507,000. The value of all 
farm products is about $4,000,000 per annum. The value of 
Boone county can not be less than $25,000,000. 

FIRST SETTLERS IN BOONE COUNTY. 

Old Mother Howe and the Widow Cross came to the county 
in 1.S24 — are no\V living at Zionsville. The Lane family, John 
Lowe,' ['"rederick Lowe — the first, John Lowe, was a trader 
among the Indians; h^-ederick Lowe was the Indiaii Agent. 
Jesse Lane settled in the year 1825, five years before the county 
was organized; he now lives in Eagle Creek township. John 
N. i'all settled in Washiiigton township at a very early day.

the county was organized. James INI. Smith was. a settler in 
1834 — his post-office address is Lebanon. Daniel Hoover set- 
tled in Zionsville very early. Robert H. Thomas, one of the 
early settlers in I^agle township, Boone county, claims to have 
been one of the number composing the first jury made in Boone 
county, which was about October, 1832. Mr. Thomas is still 
living. 

Ik^njamin Cox, another one of Boone county's first settlers, 
still remembers when it was necessary for him to go forty miles 
to get his milling done, recj^uiring four to six days' time. Mr. 
Cox has not forgotten the time when the w^ieat market for 
Boone county was at Lafayette or Lawrenceburg. He hauled 
his wheat to the latter place, receiving only forty cents per 
bushel. VVitli Mr. Cox's mule team it required from ten to 
twelve days to each trip. The roads at that time were full of 
brush, chunks, roots and stumps, besides many "sloughs" and 
pond-holes. Many a spring night has Mr. Cox had a free bull- 
frog serenade. Other early settlers encountered the same diffi- 
culties. It is very interesting to the young people of this day 
to hear such men as Mr. Cox relate their early trials and tri- 
umphs in Boone county. 

COUNTY RECORDS.

OEIsTER TOWNSHIP. 



Center Township lies very nearly in the center of the county. 
Its nieclianical outHnes, or borders, are of a pccuhar shape. It 
has the appearance of having once been much larger than it 
now is, but by degrees has been eaten into by other townships 
until it presents a jagged appearance on every side. It has no 
straight line running the full length of the township on any 
side. It is a matter of wonder to the mechanical engineer that 
counties and townships are not laid out in perfect squares, at 
least when no visible obstacle appears in the way. 

Center township contains about 55 square miles, or about 
35,200 acres. It is bounded by Marion, Clinton, Washington, 
Jefferson, Jackson, Harrison, Perry, Worth and Union town- 
ships, leaving but two townships in the county — Sugar Creek 
and Eagle — not touched by its borders. Center township is 
generally quite level, heavily timbered, and of very rich soil. 
All the productions common to the climate may be produced 
abundantly here. Much of the township rs very wet in certain 
seasons, although the level wet lands are of the very best when 
once properly drained. Time can not destroy their productive 
qualities. Intelligent farmers have disco\cred that tile draining 
is vastly more remunerative than bank investments. It is a 
matter of surprise to the well-informed agriculturist that more 
tile draining is not accomplished. It is a well advanced theory, 
established by facts, that level land well drained with un<ier- 
draina--c will withslaiid the action (/both dr(niths and Hoods far 
better tlian lands not drained at all. Indeed it is a pretty well 



1.58 BOONK COUNTY. 



established truth th;it any land, cither hill}'()i- level, is improved 
by under draining. Farms in Center township that are now 
worth only twenty to thirty dollars per acre might, with proper 
attention in this respect, be made worth four times that amount 
per acre, and at far less cost than the actual advance in price. 
What- \vc say here of Cent;-r township may be said of large 
portions of other townships in Boone county. 

Lebanon, located a little to the northwest of the center of the 
township, is a live, enterprising city, containing many fine brick 
businei-:s blocks and numerous beautiful residences. The streets 
arc well laid out and kept in good order. The coUrt-house at 
this place is a monument of credit to the people of the county, 
and in no other cuurt-hou.u- have we found a more affable and 
accommodating corps of oHkers. They have our hearty thanks 
for having generously and kindly given to our agents all needful 
information necessary to this work. In fact, the people through- 
out the county are generous, kind and intelligent, among whom 
strangers may not fear to go. There are certainly inducements, 
both in the c(nmtry and in the -towns of the count}^ for men 
seeking farms c)r other places of business. 

The I., C. iv L. K. R. runs through Center township from 
southeast to northwest, :.;iving to the township good facilities for 
trade. Thcr<; are nuiuer ous other roads of other kinds running 
into Lebanon from e\'er\- c[u.uter. 

The tov/iiship is watered by the head waters of Prairie Creek, 
whicii emi)ty into Sugar Ciei'!^ ; also b}- other small streams of 
no great im[)ort:uu.e.

SUGAR CJREEK TOWNSHIP. 



Sugar Crekk Township takes its name from a creek by the 
same name, which flows tluough the township from east to 
west, passinL,^ very nearly through its center. This township is 
located in the extreme northwest corner of the county, and Hes 
in a square body, cxcc'ijt being one half mile longer north and 
south than it is cast and west. 

The surface of Sugar Creek township is not as enticing as 
some other parts of the county, although a great portion of it is 
well adapted to the cultivation of the different kinds of grains 
and grasses. There are some spots of broken or hilly land, 
while there are others pleasingly undulating, and still others 
very level. The undulating is, at present, the most desirable 
for farming purposes, while it must be admitted that the level 
lands are by odds the richest, and in time will command the 
greatest price per acre of all other qualities of land in the 
country. Again, lot us urge upon the farmers the importance 
of tile draining ; make to yourselves farms that will be little 
empires of wealth within themselves, l-^armers, if you can hear 
of a tile factory in reach of you, don't halt between two opin- 
ions, but go at once, and if needs be, pledge your best horse or 
cow to secure tiling for at least <w<:' field. After you have care- 
fully and thoroughly drained that one field, you will need no 
one to vuge the matter upon you, but the increase in your crops 
and the satisfaction of cultivating gained thereby will be an ar- 
gument to your intelligent understanding which you can not 
well resist. Especially will this be the case with those who own

level black soils. We do not urj^e this matter in the interest of 
any manufacturer of ditchinj^ materials, but solely for the good 
of the farming community. 

Sugar Creek, running through this township, is fed by nu- 
merous small streams llowing into it from the north and south. ■ 
Some of these little brooklets find the waters of Sugar Creek 
within the borders of the township, and are very valuable for 
stock water. This township, like most of its neighbor town- 
ships, is pretty well supplied with timber, much of which is of 
a valuable kind. The public roads are passably good. 

The I., C. & L. R. R. runs through the township from its 
southeast corner to near the middle of its north line, thus giving 
to the township increased facilities for shipments. The L., C. 
& S. W. R. R. touches it upon its extreme northwest corner. 

The most important town in the townshij) is Thorn town. It 
is situated on the first-named railroad, in the southeastern part 
of the township. It is a place of considerable business enter- 
prise ; most of its inhabitants are enterprising, intelligent and 
sociable. The school-houses, bridges, and other public prop- 
ert}' are in tolerably good condition.

part of the township is level. The soil is generally very rich, 
and produces Indian corn, rye, oats and wheat in great abun- 
dance. Tt is also the very best of grass land, and only requires 
time and perseverance on the part of its inhabitants to make it 
a land flowing with every needful thing. There are already 
many fine farms in it, managed by truly intelligent farmers. 
There are, however, many spots of land in the township that 
need ditching to bring it to a perfect state of cultivation. Es- 
pecially is this the case with the northern portion of the town- 
.ship. The timber of Jackson township is of good quality and 
very plentiful. Originally the forests of oaks, elms, poplars, 
ash, sugar maples, beeches and other kinds of timber were very 
dense. The best of the oaks, walnuts and other sorts are now 
being very rapidly hewn down for the market. Large numbers 
of staves and saw-logs are shipped out of the township. Im- 
provements in the way of buildings and farm culture are up 
with other i)arts of the country, considering the newness of the 
settlements. The southern and middle parts have very many 
well regulated farms and handsome residences ; but the northern 
portion of the township is quite new, and but little has been ac- 
complished, further than to clear away small patches and erect 
\(v^ houses, many of them reminding us of our boyhood da>-.s. 
25 years ago, when we used to romp around the doors of the

little log cabin amontr the hills of Chaplin River in Old Ken- 
tucky. Those were our happy days, and we conclude that in 
the northern part of Jackson township, in Boone county, the 
people are contented with their lot. And well they may be, 
for their prospects for the future are of the liveliest sort ; their 
lands are of the vcr\ richest, and in time to come will be the 
^^arden spot of the township. The town.ship is watered by a 
few small streams, of no importance except for stock water. 
The roads, bridges and other public property are very good. 
The people are generous, hospitable and intelligent. The I., B. 
and \V. Railroad passes through the 'southwest corner of the 
township, giving to it an outlet for its produce.

256 BOONK COUNTY. 



EAGLE TOWNSHIP. 



Eagle Township is located in the southeast corner of the 
county. It contains 26 square miles. The surface is for the 
most part level, though there are some broken lands along Big 
Eagle Creek. The upland is generally very productive ; but, 
like most other townsliips surrounding it, there is much improve- 
ment needed in the way of clearing, fencing and tiling to bring 
it to a high state of desirableness for the seeker of fi»-st-class 
farms. The bottom lands, though not extensive, are very rich, 
and yield abundant crops. 

The township is watered by Rig Eagle Creek and its tributa- 
ries. This creek runs from north to south through the eastern 
part of the township, 

Zionsville, a town of extensive enterprise, is situated on the 
"Big Eagle," and the I., C. & L. R. R.; Royalton, Hamilton, 
and Eagle Village are other small towns, of no great import- 
ance except as post offices. 

The public improvements of the township may be classed 
with others no better favored. The roads are very well located, 
and are good or bad according to the seasons. The bridges are 
very good. The school houses are quite good, and exhibit a 
commendable public spirit of enterprise ; they are nine in num- 
ber, valued at ;?8ooo. S. M. White is the present Township 
Trustee. 

The vote of the township is 540; Republican majority, 50. 

There are many good farms and enterprising farmers in I'.agle 
township ; indeed, it may be said that, for the number of square

miles contained in it, the township is "well up," with enterpris- 
ing, high-spirited men, of all trades and professions.

JliFI<EKSON TOWNSHIP. 283 



JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP. 



Jkffkrson Township, in Boone county, is located on the west 
line of the county, exactly in the center from the north to south 
line. This township, like most others in Boone county, does 
not lie in a square body; if it had two square sections off the 
southwest corner of Washington township, it would be six by 
eight miles square ; as it now is it contains forty-six square 
miles. 

Some portions of the township are cjuite rolling, while others 
;u-c ag;reeably undulating, and still others are level. The town- 
ship is a good one for the production of all kinds of grain and 
grasses common to the country. Corn, wheat, rye, oats and 
barley may be profitably cultivated in most parts of the town- 
ship. Walnut Fork of Sugar Creek runs through near the cen- 
ter of the township ; its head-waters rising near the east line, 
running a westerly course, and crossing" into Montgomery county 
near Shannondale. Wolf Creek passes through the northeastern 
t[uarter of the township, running a northwesterly course, and 
emptying into Sugar Creek in the central part of Sugar Creek 
township. Neither of these streams is of much importance. 

The I., C. & L. R. R. runs near the northeast corner of the 
township; there are ikj railroads through its territory. The 
county roads are ver\' good, considering the newness of the 
country. 

The improvements of the low n -hip will compare favorably 
w ith adjoining f)nes. The fnniers are alive to their interests, 
ami will, eventualh', be Ii.iikKohu-K' rewarded for their enter-

prising perseverance. The people of Jefferson township are 
generally hospitable, intelligent, and of good repute before the 
world. 

There are twelve school-houses in the township, valued at 
$6000. James Potts is the present Township Trustee, and ap- 
pears to be considerably interested in the cause of education. 

The township casts over 400 votes, a small majority being 
democrats. 

The people seem to be interested in the moral welfare of the 
township, as they have several churches and Sabbath schools.

WORTH TOWNSHIP. 



Worth Tpwnship is located in the southeast quarter of the 
county. On the west it is bounded by Center and Perry town- 
ships, on the east by Union and Eagle, on the south by Eagle 
and Perry, and on the north by Center and Union. It is six 
miles in length, and its greatest breadth is four miles It would 
require three square miles off of Union township, added to the 
northeast corner of Worth, to make it a square body of land ; 
it would then be six by four miles, being longest north and 
south. It contains twenty-one square miles. 

Worth township is one among the best in the county. The 
land is generally level and very productive. Tiie township is 
well timbered, with a valuable quality of timber. The head- 
waters of some of the branches of Eagle Creek flow through 
and out of Worth township ; they are, however, useless, except 
for drainage and stock water. 

The county roads and school-houses are generally in good re- 
pair, but might be made still a little better. In the way of pri- 
vate enterprise and improvements, Worth township stands well 
up in the scale. The people are energetic, industrious and in- 
telligent. They are also aflable and hospitable with strangers, 
always welcoming them to their homes. 

The I., C. & L. Iv R. runs through the central part of the 
township, thereby giving to it an excellent outlet for its surplus 
protlucts. 

Whiteslown, locileil a liltl<- cast and south of the township's 
center, is a Ihuii i:>hin'.f liulc village, and commands a lively

country trade. Its population is not large, but made up of 
lively material. 

The people of the township are favorable to morals and edu- 
.cation,"n^s their school-houses and churches will testify. There 
are eight school-houses, all in good repair, valued at about 
;J?5000. 

The voting population of Worth township is about 400, with 
a large democratic majority.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP. 321 



WASHlNGTOlN TOWNSHIP. 



Washington Township is the second township cast from the 
northwest corner, and joins the Chnton county hne. It contains 
about 37 square miles. Parts of the township are considerably- 
rolling, while other portions are quite level. Most kinds of 
grain do well, but many locations are better adapted to grazing 
and fruit-raising. The bottom lands, though small in quantity 
are very productive. The township is very well timbered with 
a durable kind of timber. 

The main branch of Sugar Creek runs through the northern 
half of the township. Several other small streams run across it j 

and empty into Sugar Creek. j 

The principal town is Mechanicsburg, located in the northeast j 

corner of the township. j 

The I., C. & L. R. R. runs across the southwestern corner, 
but Thorntown, in Sugar Creek township, is the principal rail- 
road station for the people of Washington township. 

The public roads, bridges and school-houses are of a substan- 
tial character. 

The vote of the township is about 425, a majority being Re- 
publicans. 

There are ten school-houses, valued at ;$3500. B. F. Linipus 
is the present Township Trustee.

334 UOONE COUNTY. 



(M.IX^JX)N TOWNb^HIR 



Clinton 'rowNsiiii- borders oti the north line of the county^ 
iind is the second townshij) from the east h'ne. It contains 33 
square miles. 'I'he soil is good, timber heavy and plentiful. 

The township is drained by small branches of Sugar Creek, 
which run from scnitheast to northwest, emptying into the main 
stream near the northwest corner of the township. The main 
branch of Sugar Creek runs across and cuts off a small portion 
of the to\v'nshi[) on its northwest corner. 

The timber is of the very best, and is largely manufoctured 
into staves, lumber, etc., for eastern markets. The personal 
improvements are very good, considering the newness of the 
country and advantages of transportation. At present there 
are no railroads through the township. 

Kiizaville, a small \illage in the southern part of the town- 
ship, is a lively little trading post. 

The peoi)le of this township are kind and generous, seeming 
to have a desire for progress in morals, intelligence and finances. 

The township has nine school-houses, two brick and seven 
frame, valueil at about $5000.

MARION TOWNSHIP. 345 



MARION TOWNSHIP. 



Marion Township is located in the northeast corner of the 
county. It is bounded on the north and east by CHnton and 
Hamilton counties, and on the west and south by Clinton, Cen- 
ter and Union townships. The surface of the township is gener- 
ally level ; the soil rich and productive. The southern part is 
well timbered, and is watered by the head branches of Eagle 
Creek ; other parts of the township are poorly supplied with 
streams — even sufficient for stock water and drainage. Marion 
township contains an area of forty-five square miles ; it has no 
railroads, but is tolerably well supplied with county roads. The 
township has no towns in it above the limits of a village ; these 
serve only as local trade centers and postal conveniences. The 
inhabitants are, with few exceptions, friendly and hospitable. 
The township is well supplied with school houses, there being 
twelve frame buildings, valued at about $3,000. Some of these 
houses are very good, while others are of but little value. The 
vote of the township is about five hundred, with a strong repub- 
lican majority. The township is not wanting in the way of 
churches and moral instruction.

HAKKISUN TOWNSIlil'. 35/ 



HARRISOISj TOAVNSHIP. 



Harrison Townshii', in Boone county, is located on the south 
hne of the county, ei<^ht miles from the southwest corner. It 
contains about twenty-five square nu'les ; its surface is quite 
level, soil rich and productive. It is pretty well supi^lied with 
county roads ; these roads, owing to the llatness of the country, 
are not very passable in wet seasons. Marrison township, 
with proper draining, would be behind none of its neighbor 
townships in productiveness. Her roads need grading and 
ditching"; and her husbandmen shouUl clear out the underbrush 
and sow the land to grass, so that in a few years they might 
boast of Harrison township as a little empire vf weal':h. The 
township is well timl)ereil, but not so well watered. There are 
no streams, further than small brooks, which answer for stock- 
water only. The township has no railroad within its border. 
I'hc I., B. & VV. R. R. runs a short distance from its southwest 
corner. Some parts of the township are tolerably well improved. 
Its towns, Milledgeville and New Bjrunswick, are small. Harri- 
son township has eight frame scho(jl houses, mostly in good 
rci)air, valued at about $i,000. The township is also well sup- 
plied with places of worshij:) ; the various denominations are 
generally rcpresenteti. I'he people seem to take considerable j 

interest in the progress of learning, and are equall}' an.KJous 
that the morals of tluir communit)' shall compare fax'orably 
w itii other loc.ilities. With few exceptions the inhabitants of 
H.uiison to\\nshi[) .ire hospitable and well (lis|)osfd toward 
stranLTcrs.

UNION TOWNSHIP. 369 



UNION TOWNSHIP. 



Union To\vn.si!U>, Boone county, contains twenty-five square 
miles, or fifteen thousand acres of land. It lies on the east line 
of the county, and is bcMuuled on the north by Marion town- 
ship, on the west by Worth and Center, and on the south by 
Eagle. It would rec^uire five sections of land out of Worth 
township to make Union township square. Northfield is the 
only town in the township, and it is located in the neighborhood 
of its center ; the town is not large but its inhabitants are intel- 
h'gent and industrious. The townsliip has no railroad ; Whites- 
town, in Worth township, being the nearest railroad station. 
It is located on the I., C. & L. R. R. The township is abun- 
dantly timbered with a valuable variety of oak, ash, walnut, 
hickory, maple, poplar, etc. IMany thousands of staves are 
annually shipped, or hauled out of the township. Although 
this is a small township, it stands well up with others of the 
county for enterprise, both private and public. There are many 
good and well inqjrovcd farms to be seen in the southern part, 
and (juite a goodly number in the northern. The township is 
watered by the "Big Eag^^>" ^"<^ its branches. The public 
improvements are good, especially the school houses, of which 
there are eight in number, valued at $6,500.

PERRY TOWNSPIIP. 



Perry Township is located in the southeast quarter of the 
county, one township from the east Hne, and bordering on the 
south line. It is a small township, containing only twenty-one 
square miles ; it lies in a square, except four sections out of its 
northeast corner, which belong to Worth township. The land 
in Perry township is generally very level ; the soil is good, but 
will require a large amount of ditching before it can be brought 
into a high state of cultivation. The timber is very good and 
plentiful, with considerable underbrush. The improvements of 
the township are pritnary, representing partially the early settle- 
ments of the country. The little "log cabin" and "truck 
patch " are visible in many places ; time, however, will undoubt- 
edly make of the wilderness a land of great plenty. 

The public roads are not of the best, neither are they very 
plenteous in number. No railroad runs through this township. 
Fayette, in the south part, has some very good business houses. 

The people of the township are honest, sociable, and well dis- 
posed toward strangers. Streams of water are scarce, and of 
diminutive capacity. 

THEOLOGICAL. 

Christian Church, Fayette; membership, 50; value of pro- 
perty, $500. 

There are other churches in Perry township, but owing to the 
absence of parties who were able to give proper information 
to our agents concerning them, we are necessarily compcileil 
to omit gi\'ing their names, etc.; however, we arc informed that
